Belarus has retaliated to the European Union sanctions by halting cooperation on stemming illegal migration and denying entry to E.U. officials.

The E.U. on Thursday slapped new bruising economic sanctions on Belarus over last month’s diversion of a passenger jet to arrest a dissident journalist.

Belarus’ authoritarian President Alexander Lukashenko has denounced the E.U. sanctions as part a “hybrid war” waged by the West against Belarus.

The Belarusian Foreign Ministry said Monday that Belarus would move to suspend a readmission agreement with the E.U. that is intended to stem illegal migration.

The ministry said that the country will also deny entry to unspecified E.U. officials, recall its envoy to the E.U. and ask the E.U. representative to leave Minsk.
