The Belarusian border guards didn’t let Siarhei Salash, leader of the BPF branch in Barysau, for a Minsk–Frankfurt flight.

The politician didn’t pass the passport control. He was told he was on the list of restricted to travel abroad. Nasha Niva newspaper reports the reason wasn’t explained.

Siarhei Salash was to have flown to the United States for three days within the frames of an education program.

It’s interesting that Salash was in Lithuania on 1-2 July and didn’t face any troubles when crossing the border. Before he received an American visa, Siarhei Salash took a permit for leaving the country in the Minsk oblast department of internal affairs. The certificate was given without problems.
