У чэрвені 2019 года ў Беларусi пакаралі смерцю Аляксандра Жыльнікава. Паводле паведамленняў, з высокай верагоднасцю Вячаслава Сухарку таксама пакаралі смерцю. Еўрапейскі саюз шчыра спачувае родным і блізкім ахвяр здзейсненых злачынстваў.

В июне 2019 в Беларуси казнили Александра Жильникова. Cогласно сообщениям, высока вероятность того, что Вячеслав Сухарко также был казнен. Европейский союз искренне сочувствует родным и близким жертв совершенных преступлений. В то же время ЕС подтверждает свое решительное неприятие смертной казни при любых обстоятельствах и призывает Беларусь ввести мораторий на смертную казнь в качестве первого шага к отмене.
