On 11 March the deputy head of the Human Rights Center "Viasna" Valiantsin Stefanovich didn't manage to come to Lithuania. He was stopped by border guards at the crossing point "Kamenny Loh" and told that foreign travel restrictions were applied towards him.

However, the human rights defender received no explanations. On 7 March officers of this crossing point didn't let out the head of the United Civil Party Anatol Liabedzka, on 10 March – the head of the Belarusian Leftist Party "Fair World" Siarhei Kaliakin and activist of the movement "For Freedom" Viktar Karniayenka.

Bear in mind that in the beginning of March the web-portal tut.by stated that the Belarusian authorities were considering the possibility of introducing foreign travel restrictions towards the people who directly called to introduce sanctions against Belarus. According to that information, the preliminary list contained 108 surnames. This is the way the Belarusian regime reacts to the extension of the list of Belarusian officials falling under visa restrictions and freezing of assets in the EU.
