The State Border Guard Service states that the passenger traffic by land transport on the border with Belarus in 2020 amounted to 1.8 million people for entry and exit.

The speaker of the State Border Guard Service, Andrii Demchenko, announced this to Ukrainian News Agency.

"In 2020, 1,800,000 passengers were registered at the border with Belarus," the speaker said.

At the same time, according to him, for four months of this year, the total passenger traffic at the border by land transport amounted to slightly more than 192,000 people.

Demchenko noted that he does not have data on passenger traffic in the air route with Belarus for 2020, as well as for the current year.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Ukraine is ceasing air communication with the Republic of Belarus from May 26.

On May 23, Belarusian air traffic controllers reported that a Ryanair aircraft, which was en route from Athens (Greece) to Vilnius (Lithuania), was being mined, so that it was forced to land in Minsk.

After landing in Belarus, law enforcers detained the founder of the opposition Telegram channel NEXTA Roman Protasevich and his girlfriend.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen stated that it was absolutely unacceptable to force the Athens-Vilnius flight to land in Minsk, and any violation of the rules of international transport should have consequences.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine demanded the release of the detained Belarusian opposition leader and journalist Roman Protasevich.

The inter-factional association of the Verkhovna Rada For Democratic Belarus called for the termination of diplomatic ties with Belarus in connection with the arrest of Protasevich.
