Cabinet resolution #176 of February 28, 2023 

Decision-maker: the Cabinet 

На кого впливає: border authorities, citizens, foreigners, and businesses in Ukraine and Belarus 

Summary of the resolution: due to a fundamental change in circumstances, the Agreement between the Government of Ukraine and the Government of the Republic of Belarus on the organization of joint control at checkpoints on the Ukrainian-Belarusian state border is terminated. The agreement was effective from December 1995. 

What is right: 

  • Ukraine continues to isolate the country complicit in the Russian aggression 
  • the resolution confirmed that checkpoints on the Ukrainian-Belarusian border are almost out of operation. Currently, only one checkpoint on the Ukrainian-Belarusian border, Domanove, is operational. It is open only to Ukrainian citizens going back to the territory of Ukraine. Not a single person was allowed to leave Ukraine through it.
