TALLINN, Estonia (AP) — The Belarus Red Cross says it is examining a call by the international Red Cross to fire its chief, who made headlines earlier this year for bragging that his organization was ferrying children from Russian-occupied Ukraine to Belarus. The International Red Cross said Wednesday wants Dzmitry Shautsou ousted for violating rules on neutrality and integrity. On Thursday, Belarusian TV aired images of authorities in the Belarusian city of Novopolotsk showing a recently arrived group of Ukrainian children to foreign diplomats from former Soviet republics as well as China, India, Mozambique and Syria.
