German Vice-Chancellor Olaf Scholz called for the international isolation of Belarus with regard to the Ryanair airplane incident
According to him, Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko violated international law by forcing the plane to land in Minsk.
On Sunday, a Ryanair flight en route from Athens to Vilnius had to make an emergency landing in Minsk over a bomb threat flagged by the Belarusian authorities, which turned out to be fake. One of the plane's passengers, Roman Protasevich, the founder of a Telegram channel that Minsk has designated as extremist, was detained during the stopover at the Minsk airport.
