Ryanair’s unexpected layover: What you need to know​​​​​​

Protasevich runs the popular Nexta Telegram channel, which played a key role in organizing protests against Belarusian president Alexander Lukashenko last year. Global leaders in the U.S. and EU have condemned intercepting the flight as “state terrorism.”
