A Polish government program to assist Belarusian IT specialists in relocating to Poland has seen 790 Belarusians obtain visas. But the system leaves gaps in an otherwise burgeoning domestic IT ecosystem.
The ruling underlines the ongoing rift between the EU institutions and the Polish government over the rule of law. Critics say the way judges are appointed has become a tool to politicize the judiciary.
Belarusian authorities have arrested dozens of protesters calling for the resignation of President Alexander Lukashenko. The arrests came on a holiday, celebrated by the opposition, dating back more than a century.
Judges ruled that the activists did not commit a crime by producing and distributing images of the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus with rainbow halos.
