Sanctioned regime
17:12, 25/07/2003, Sergey Krivoshein, BDG/ Mestnaja gazeta

Last week the Chamber of representatives of the U.S. congress adopted the text of the “Law on international relations for 2004-2005 fiscal years”. One of its chapters is totally devoted to measures of defending Belarusian democracy. Although, the law will be discussed in the upper chamber not without certain difficulties, we can say for sure that the severe American sanctions will overtake the Belarusian government this autumn. Let’s remind that American congressman Smith proposed to adopt “Belarus Democracy Act” according to which the allocation of financial aid for supporting democracy in our country including the independent mass media was intended. However “ Belarus Democracy Act ” wasn’t adopted as a separate document and later became part of the “Law on international relations for the 2004-2005 fiscal years” So, The United States openly spoke for the forces opposing Lukashenko’s regime for the first time.
