MINSK, February 28. /ITAR-TASS/. No one of supporters of Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych has filed requests with the Belarusian authorities for granting political asylum, Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei said
“No one has asked us for granting a political asylum and as far as I know there are no supporters of Viktor Yanukovych on our territory,” the Belarusian Foreign Ministry’s press service said quoting him.
As he spoke to reporters upon the completion of talks with his Latvian counterpart in Riga, he said that if the Belarusian authorities were confident that people were being persecuted illegally and only because of their political convictions - the way it is happening now to the Ukrainian Communist party now - “we would then grant political asylums these individuals,” Makei said.
The headquarters of the Communist Party has been subjected to roughhousing and a private country house of the party leader has been burned down.
