European track cycling championships in Belarus cancelled - official

The European track cycling championships, scheduled to be held in Minsk next month, were cancelled Thursday amid political fall-out from Belarus' forced landing of an airliner to arrest regime opponents. "In light of the current international situation, the Management Board has decided to cancel the 2021 Elite Track European Championships scheduled in Minsk (Belarus) from 23 to 27 June 2021," the European cycling union (UEC) announced. UEC president Enrico Della Casa added: "We have recently been monitoring the situation with the Belarus Cycling Federation which has now developed into an international debate and today during the Management Board meeting, we have decided to cancel the event in Minsk. "We are already working on finding an alternative solution to enable the riders from our 50 National Federations to compete in this season's continental event." The decision follows a furious reaction from the European Union after a Ryanair flight from Athens to the Lithuanian capital Vilnius was intercepted by a Belarusian fighter jet and forced to land in Minsk on Sunday so that authorities could arrest opposition journalist Roman Protasevich. The EU banned Belarusian planes from the bloc's airspace and urged EU airlines to avoid flying over the ex-Soviet country ruled for nearly 27 years by Alexander Lukashenko, often dubbed "Europe's last dictator". But a defiant Lukashenko said he had "acted lawfully to protect our people", in an address to parliament on Wednesday. In his first public statement since the Ryanair flight was diverted and Protasevich and his girlfriend Sofia Sapega were arrested, Lukashenko dismissed the international outcry. The criticism was nothing more than another attempt by his opponents to undermine his rule, he said, accusing them of waging a "modern, hybrid war" against Belarus and of crossing "boundaries of common sense and human morality".
