The total length of Ukraine-Belarus border is about 1,084 km. Following the Chornobyl disaster in 1986, a big portion of the border lays with the so-called Chornobyl Exclusion Zone (Ukrainian side) and Polesie State Radioecological Reserve (Belarusian side). The area does not have adequate infrastructure for border crossing which is conducted in the area under special authority due to contamination. The exclusion zone itself has own checkpoints.
