Foreign Minister of Belarus Vladimir Makei explained what restrictions are in effect on the border with Ukraine. He told about this in an interview with RT TV channel.

According to him, the border remains open for tourists and ordinary citizens.

"The closure of borders does not mean that there are any obstacles for business, for tourism or for the movement of ordinary citizens. But as far as countering organized crime and attempts to organize terrorist acts are concerned, we will take the toughest measures here," Makei said.

As we reported earlier, Lukashenko  ordered the full closure of the country's border with Ukraine, seeking to block what he called an inflow of weapons to coup-plotters detected by his security services.

Meanwhile, the US government is aware of the decision of the Belarusian authorities to close the border with Ukraine and promises to hold the government of President Alexander Lukashenko accountable for its actions. 

"It appears the Lukashenko regime is once again seeking to deflect attention away from its campaign of repression against its people. We will continue to stand with the Belarusan people and hold the regime accountable," a senior official from the administration of US President Joe Biden said.
