In particular, 15 foreigners were traveling by regular bus from Minsk.
“During border control measures, citizens told the servicemen of the State Border Guard Service that they were sent to our state for the purpose of tourism. However, during an additional check, they found out that foreigners, including four teenagers, flew to the capital of Belarus a few weeks ago and immediately went to the Grodno region. In their words, having examined the “sights” in the west of the neighboring republic, the travelers decided to look into Ukraine as well. The travelers assured them that in our country they were most interested in the landscapes of the Lviv region. It was from Lviv that they supposedly planned to return home, ” …
It was also found that most of these persons had passports issued practically in the same period, in September – October of this year.
Now the servicemen of the State Border Service have made a decision not to pass and return travelers to the Republic of Belarus, since these persons had no grounds to enter the territory of our state.https://www.youtube.com/embed/9jHqsSdXJYA
