Why Does the US Care About Belarus?

More than 34,000 people have been arrested since protests started last year, demanding that the country’s long-time President leave office. Igor Bancer is about to be one of them. VICE caught up with Bancer in the days before he left to serve an eight month sentence of hard labor.

Plus – VICE speaks with Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, the leader of Belarus’ democratic opposition, and Senator Jeanne Shaheen, of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, about how the US is responding to the situation in Belarus – and balancing its complicated relationship with its neighbor, Russia.
