Berlin recalls military attache from Belarus


German authorities have made it because of massive violations of human rights in Belarus.

Germany has decided to recall its military attache in Belarus because of the political situation there, the foreign ministry said Sunday.

"The current political situation in Belarus does not allow the German military attache in Minsk to continue his work," a spokesman told AFP, saying it had been decided to withdraw the attache and his colleagues.

Der Spiegel reported that the government was responding to attacks on civil society in Belarus, dubbed the last dictatorship in Europe.
