The measures announced on Monday affect Belorussian state companies and the aeronautical sector, by preventing British companies to provide technical assistance to airplanes from that country.

Industrial products of that Eastern European country will not be sold in the United Kingodm, and our aerospace companies will not touch its luxury airplanes fleet, British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab said.

The British conservative government also restricted trade in potash and oil byproducts from Belarus, as well as monitoring and interception technologies and supplies for cigarette manufacturing.

The sanctions come in addition to the ban on Belarusian aircraft from flying over or landing in the UK, imposed in May, and other measures taken by London in retaliation for alleged human rights violations by the Lukashenko administration.

The Belorussian president was re-elected in August, 2020, with over 80 percent of the votes, but the British executive, as well as most Western countries, refuse to acknowledge his victory.
