So folks. Just a quick one today. If you recall I posted on the protests and the treatment of the protestors mid-last year. Well, things have taken a turn for the worse recently. From what I understand, the government forced a Ryan Air plane headed for Vilnius to land in Minsk instead, on board was a journalist who they regarded as not covering the protests or election favourably, who was arrested on landing. I’ve heard reports there was Belarus “KGB” on board and possibly a military jet in the sky forcing the plane to divert. It has been called a ‘state-sponsored hijacking’. Sad because I really liked the city of Minsk when I visited 2 years ago. I don’t know that tourism is going to be something returning to Belarus any time in the near future, Covid or no Covid. This world is a worry right now with events in the Middle East, and in Colombia too it seems all hell is breaking loose. Wherever you are in the world, stay safe.
Thanks for popping by. May the Journey Never End.
