(4)

On 6 November 2020, in view of the gravity of the situation in Belarus, the Council adopted Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/1648 (3), which designated Alexandr Lukashenko and 14 other persons, among them persons from his close circle.

(5)

On 19 November 2020, the Council agreed to proceed with the preparation of a further round of sanctions, as a response to the brutality of the Belarusian authorities and in support of the democratic rights of the Belarusian people.

(6)

In view of the ongoing repression of civil society in Belarus, 29 persons and 7 entities should be included in the list of natural and legal persons, entities and bodies subject to restrictive measures set out in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 765/2006.

(7)
