SEOUL (Reuters). – South Korea is to implement export controls on Belarus in order “effectively support the Russian invasion of Ukraine”, Seoul’s foreign ministry stated Sunday.

While the details of what actions would be taken were not provided by the ministry, they stated that similar moves to those taken against Russia by South Korea will be followed. Moscow was condemned for having “armed invaded” Ukraine.

South Korea announced last month that it will tighten Russia’s export control by prohibiting shipments strategic goods and joining Western countries in blocking some Russian banks from SWIFT.

According to Sunday’s statement, the ministry claimed that the Korean government had decided today to also implement export controls measures against Belarus. This was in response to the fact that Belarus has been supporting the Russian invasion.

Russia considers its actions in Ukraine “special operations”. Andrey Kulik (Russia’s Ambassador to South Korea) expressed regret last month over sanctions. He blamed the “strong outside pressure” exerted on Seoul by the United States and their Western partners.
