In Ukraine, crossing the state border to enter Belarus has been suspended. This was reported by the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine with reference to information from the Embassy of Ukraine in Belarus.

The department reports that the closure does not apply to those who are sent on diplomatic documents; crews of aircraft, ships, trains; close relatives of Belarusians or those who have a residence permit in Belarus; students, and applicants of Belarusian institutions and people who go to the Covid vaccination.

People who arrive from the red countries in Belarus will be obliged to self-isolation for seven days and will not be allowed to leave the country during this time.

Foreigners from six years old (except for those who have a residence permit in Belarus) have a document confirming a negative test result for COVID-19 with a PCR test done within 3 days before crossing the border.

Foreigners who do not have a negative test may be denied entry into the country.

As it was reported earlier, on July 2, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko instructed border guards to completely close the border with Ukraine. According to him, a huge amount of weapons is being supplied to Belarus from Ukraine. The Ukrainian side has not received official notifications about the closure of the border from Belarus.
