The move follows the forced landing of a Ryanair flight by Belarus on May 23, which flew over the Eastern European country en route to Vilnius, Lithuania from Athens. After the plane landed in Minsk, at the request of the Belarusian Air Force, the authorities detained dissident journalist Roman Protasevich, who is an opponent of the authoritarian President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko.
