EU is punishing Belarus with economic sanctions for grounding a plane to arrest a journalist, as well as blacklisting certain individuals from entering its territory and freezing their assets.

Why is this incident being treated much more harshly than when the USA attempted to ground a plane allegedly with Edward Snowden on board?

I would expect the Evo Morales incident to be treated much more seriously, because it was a presidential flight, which should enjoy immunity, as opposed to grounding a plane with civilians, which damnable as it is, is not as diplomatically damaging.
