A trip to Belarus to be taken by parlamentarians has been postponed, Polish MEP Marek Migalski told Radio Racyja. In the course of it the representatives of the European Parliament intended to call on the political prisoners in penal colonies they are being kept in. It is noteworthy that all the necessary documents were duly filed to Belarus’s delegation in Brussels.

"We are going to return to the subject in September," Mr Migalski said. According to him, the trip has been put off because the conditions made by the Belarusian side were unacceptable to the European Union.

MEPs were to arrive in Belarus at the end of July.
