Jeffrey Gedmin visits Minsk and presents strong reasons for the US and the EU to continue pressure on the Belarus regime.

From Wall Street Journal: "NATO sees Belarus as a potential threat to
neighboring Lithuania. Russian tanks stationed in Belarus can be in the
Lithuanian capital, Vilnius, in about 90 minutes . . . The man who rules
Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, is severe. In 1995 he had his air force shoot
down a hot air balloon that had strayed into his air space, killing two
Americans."
