The world leaders react outraged for ‘hijacking’ Ryanair plane ordered by the Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko to arrest opposition activist.
The airplane, on a flight from Athens to the Lithuanian capital Vilnius, was in Belarus airspace, when it was intercepted and forced to land in its capital Minsk.
Roman Protasevich (age 26) journalist and passenger on the flight, was arrested.
Roman Protasevich is accused of “extremism” in Belarus, of organising riots and inciting hatred.
The United Nations civil aviation agency said: the forced landing “could be in contravention of the Chicago Convention”, a treaty that protects nations’ airspace sovereignty.
NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said he is closely monitoring the situation and detention of the 26 years old journalist Roman Protasevich.
The world government movement believes it is not good for the relationship between Russia and the West.
We would love to see the world more unite instead of more division, and we pray the situation will not escalate but improve.
