The EUF, in unison with the European Humanities University (EHU), expresses its full solidarity with student Sofia Sapega, detained in Minsk by the Belarusian authorities during the forced landing of a Ryanair flight in Minsk.
We join the academic community of the EHU, a long-standing member university of the EUF network, in demanding the immediate release of Sofia Sapega and Raman Pratasevich.
We categorically condemn the impunity with which the Belarusian authorities have acted, hoping the fundamental rights of its citizens will eventually be respected.
