Sanctions against Belarus: does Stadler have to vacate the Minsk plant?

Stadler patron Peter Spuhler (62) likes to pretend to be an entrepreneur and train builder who does not interfere in politics at the locations of his plants. This tactic could soon no longer work in Belarus. Stadler operates a plant there in Fanipol near Minsk with around 1,500 employees. Stadler has invested over 100 million francs in the factory.

But after the forced landing of a Ryanair jet in the Belarusian capital Minsk and the subsequent arrest of the Belarusian blogger, regime critic Roman Protasewitsch (26), the EU tries to put dictator Alexander Lukashenko (66) under pressure with sanctions. For example, since Brussels has closed EU airspace for the Belarusian state airline Belavia since Saturday. Stricter sanctions, which particularly affect the Belarusian economy directly, could follow.
