Hungarian foreign affairs approved Free for EuropeHe issued a Schengen visa Alexander Lukashenko a trusted person, Vladimir Bazanovnak. The ministry claims that the visa was issued on behalf of Switzerland because it has an agreement with the alpine country of Belarus on such matters.
Bazhanov was arrested in the Czech Republic and expelled from the country. The Czech police are preparing in advance to arrest the Belarusian man.
Vladimir Bazhanov, a confidant of Lukisanka, has been a former soldier but also the head of the Belarus Football Federation since 2019. Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are also banned from participating in the electoral fraud of the 2020 Belarus elections.
The arrest of Bazhanov on November 30 sparked a diplomatic storm, as the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs ordered the Chargé d’Affairs at the Czech Embassy in Minsk and handed him a protest list.
Vladimir Bazhanov officially accompanied the European women’s football team on a personal tour with his wife. Before that, they were in Cyprus, but Cyprus is not a Schengen country. The Belarusian Sports Solidarity Foundation, which helps athletes, was told what the blacklist Bazhanov is looking for in EU countries at all.
Since the women’s national team was officially at that time in Opava, Czech Republic, for the match, they asked the Czech government why Bazhanov was accepted. According to the response of the Czech Foreign Ministry on November 29, the case is already under investigation, and it is certain that the man did not obtain a Czech visa and is not in the country, but if he enters, they will take “appropriate steps”.
On the issue of Free Europe, the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Foreign Affairs confirmed that Vladimir Bazhanov had already been granted a Hungarian Schengen visa. May 21 visa is exactly for ninety days.
According to Foreign Affairs, the visa was issued on behalf of Switzerland, and Bazhanov also issued an invitation from UEFA. By the way, this means that Hungary has judged the request.
