Belarus State Border Committee: Possible routes of the law violator are being worked out

Security measures have been strengthened at the Belarusian-Ukrainian border. This is due to the incident at the checkpoint Alexandrovka through which a Jeep tried to break through the day before. Two people have been detained. Nevertheless, according to some other resources, there could have been another person in the car. The search for him continues.

Anton Bychkovsky, official representative of Belarus' State Border Committee:
Cooperation on the spots with Belarus’ law enforcement bodies and Ukrainian border guards has been organized. All the possible routes of the law violator are being worked out, including the direction of Ukraine. As a result, border security measures have been strengthened both on the green border at the checkpoints and on the territory of borderland. Control measures concerning the legitimacy of being on the borderland territory of people and transport facilities are being carried out by the State Border Service. Tracker animals are involved as well.

The Border Service Committee assures that there are no queues on the Belarusian-Ukrainian border due to the measures which have been undertaken.
