In recent years, following the rigged elections of 2020 and mass protests in Belarus, the regime of Alexander Lukashenko has transformed into a totalitarian dictatorship that aims to maintain power and complete control of the country and its citizens. The human rights situation in the country has become critical: the number of political prisoners is rising, opposition parties are banned, all independent media outlets and non-governmental organisations shut down, strict censorship was imposed, repression and intimidation continue to deter any participation in democratic processes and attempts to defend fundamental rights and freedoms in protests. Human rights organisations have identified thousands of cases of torture and cruel treatment of the Belarusian people by force structures. There is no information on the fate of many political prisoners; it is unclear if they are still alive and healthy. All this has become a common practice of the Belarusian regime aimed at undermining attempts by Belarusians to protest or resist. Moreover, the Lukashenko regime continues to use aggressive rhetoric and pursues a hostile foreign policy towards its neighbours – weaponising irregular migration to destabilise the situation in Lithuania and other EU countries, disregarding international nuclear safety standards, supporting the Russian military aggression against Ukraine, etc.
