Alexander, a resident of Zelva (Hrodna voblast), was not allowed travelling to Poland through the checkpoint Berastovitsa-Bobrowniki. Border guards motivated their decision by the fact that five days hadn't been expired yet since his last checkout outside Belarus. According to Alexander, Special Forces were on duty at a checkpoint.

At the same time, he said, the Belarusian side is not willing to queue to cross the border by car, reports «European Radio for Belarus

As Telegraf previously reported, June 12, many drivers were sent back on the border with Poland in connection with the ban on fuel and consumer goods export. In particular, those, trying to get to Poland for the second day in a row, were not let across the border. This fact pushed more than 100 drivers to go on strike near Bruzhi checkpoint in protest against the innovation.
