Britain and Canada have announced sanctions on senior Belarusian figures including President Alexander Lukashenko following last month's election and the subsequent crackdown on protesters.

Seven other officials including the country’s interior minister, the public security police chief and Lukashenko’s son Victor — a national security adviser — are covered by the sanctions, which include an asset freeze and travel ban.

It makes the president the first leader of a country to be sanctioned by the UK under its new Global Human Rights programme, which was introduced in July, announce Euronews.
