On 7 March the leader of the United Civil Party (UCP), Anatol Liabedzka, was told on the Belarusian-Lithuanian border he was not permitted to visit the EU.

“I am at Kamenny Loh border checkpoint now,” Anatol Liabedzka told “I was forbidden to enter the EU territory. They do not explain why I am banned from leaving Belarus. They only said I could learn it from appropriate agencies in Minsk. They do not know the reasons, but their computer says I am prohibited to leave the country. I got a ‘denied’ stamp” in my passport.”

As it was reported earlier, there is a list of 108 opposition activists who will be banned from leaving Belarus for calling to toughen sanctions against Lukashenka's regime.
