Belarus is a landlocked country in eastern Europe. Commonly labelled “Europe’s last dictatorship”, the State has virtually no political opposition and has been under the authoritarian leadership of Alexander Lukashenko since 1994. Belarus is the only country in Europe that still endorses the death penalty, and has been widely criticised for its restrictions on freedom of expression and association.
