Belarus (bbabo.net), - Polish trucks and tractors will be restricted from entering the territory of Belarus. The corresponding resolution was adopted today, on February 17, by the Belarusian government.
It is reported that "the movement of trucks and tractors registered in the Republic of Poland will now be carried out to carry out cargo operations or transfer only through the Belarusian-Polish section of the State Border of Belarus." At the same time, it is emphasized that the government decree was adopted in connection with the closure by the Polish side from February 10, 2023 of the road checkpoint "Bobrovniki" (the adjacent Belarusian "Berestovitsa").
“In order to evenly distribute traffic flows sent from road checkpoints to specially designated places for cargo operations or transfers, for checkpoints Kozlovichi (Belarusian-Polish section), Privalka and Benyakoni (Belarusian-Lithuanian section) such places are supplemented by the Berestovitsa-TLC customs clearance point and a waiting area for entering the Berestovitsa checkpoint,” the press service of the Belarusian government said.
The Decree enters into force after its official publication.
Recall that earlier Poland left only one checkpoint on the border with Belarus. Minsk called this step an “economic provocation” and promised to respond to it.
