What can be done to challenge Lukasheko’s regime in Belarus?

Emily Tamkin in Washington, DC and Ido Vock in Berlin host the New Statesman's weekly global affairs podcast, World Review

Emily Tamkin in Washington DC and Ido Vock in Berlin are joined by Belarusian journalist Tadeusz Giczan to discuss the situation in Belarus after the athlete Krystina Timanovskaya evaded an apparant kidnap attempt by the regime after criticising her Olympic commitee after a mixup during the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. As she arrives in Poland on a humanitarian visa, they discuss what western governments could do to put pressure on the regime .

In You Ask Us, Emily, Ido and Tadeusz also answer a listener’s question on what can be done about Belarus escorting Iraqi migrants into the EU.
