The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus explained the detention of the Ukrainian writer Serhiy Zhadan by misunderstanding. This writer himself told the TV channel 112 Ukraine.
According to Zhadan, on the abolition of a ban on entry to Belarus he found out already on his way to Ukraine. "The representatives of the Foreign Ministry of Belarus said that it was a misunderstanding, they already solved the problem," he said.
Zhadan noted that for him the ban on entry to Belarus was a surprise. "According to law enforcement, I was in the lists from 2015. Then I was excluded from the list, and then added again. For me, it's all meaningless. What kind of terrorism it is all about? This is some nonsense. I was in Belarus last summer, then no one spoke about prohibitions, " he said.
