Alexander Lukashenko said that Belarus will not allow flights from Ukraine. This decision is connected with the ban on the flights of Belarusian aircraft in the skies over Ukraine, Belta reports.

The unrecognized president of Belarus announced such a decision on Saturday, June 19.

"Since Ukraine has closed our passage, we will not simply accept planes from Ukraine," he said.

After the incident with the forced landing of the plane and the detention of journalist Roman Protasevich, a number of EU countries decided to suspend flights over Belarus, including flights to the country.

On May 26, Ukraine also announced the suspension of flights with Belarus. In addition, three days later, Ukraine closed its skies to Belarusian aircraft.

Earlier Alexander Lukashenko has signed a law on strengthening responsibility for violating the order of holding mass events, as well as for participating in extremist activities and promoting extremist activities. Belta reported this.

According to the law, responsibility is provided for extremism (participation in extremist formation and promotion of extremist activities, training in such activities). In Belarus, articles on stirring of social hatred, justification of Nazism, calls for the overthrow of the constitutional order, attempts to seize power, and mass riots are described as "extremism."

Liability is also provided for repeated violations of the procedure for holding mass events (at the same time, liability will arise in the presence of double administrative prejudice).
