The European Union decided to close its airspace to aircraft belonging to airlines in Belarus, in response to diverting a plane to Minsk to arrest an opposition journalist.

At a meeting in Brussels, the leaders of the 27 member states of the European Union agreed to prevent airlines in the bloc from using Belarusian airspace, pledging to impose new economic sanctions on them.

Roman Protasevic, 26, was on a plane from Greece to Lithuania when the plane was forced to change course, under the pretext of suspicion of a bomb on board.

Western countries accused Belarus of hijacking the European plane of the “Ryanair” company.
