HR Support by Pompeo: trip to Washington








The Center for Belarusian Studies would like to express its thanks to Congressman Mike Pompeo for serving as a co-sponsor for HR 515 Belarus Democracy and Human Rights Act of 2011.

Pompeo and his staff responded quickly to the CBS’s request for sponsorship made by Dr. Survilla and Ambassador Swartz during a visit to the Congressman’s offices in Washington in April of 2011. The legislation is in continuing support of media broadcasts for the people of Belarus in their own language. It also includes criteria that the government of Belarus must meet in order to end U.S. sanctions including: the release of political prisoners from the 2010 presidential election; the prosecution of the senior leadership responsible for the violations of human rights in connection with the presidential election; and the removal of politically motivated legal charges against opposition activists and journalists in connection with that election. Congressman Pompeo represents the 4th district of Kansas which is the home base for the Center for Belarusian Studies.
