The self-proclaimed President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko signed a law to suspend the agreement with the European Union on the readmission of persons staying without permission. The document comes into force today, October 14.
This is reported by the country’s national legal Internet portal.
It was prepared as part of the response to the EU’s actions towards Belarus.
“To suspend the agreement between the Republic of Belarus and the European Union on the readmission of persons staying without permission, signed in Brussels on January 8, 2020”, – the document says.
The agreement defines a mechanism for the transfer, acceptance and return of persons who have violated the conditions of entry, stay and residence.
Readmission – the consent of the state to receive back to its territory its citizens who are subject to deportation from another state.

- In this regard, the Lithuanians began to strengthen the border, it got to the point that Ukraine sent barbed wire to Lithuania as humanitarian aid. The US called on Lukashenka to stop the flow of illegal migrants to Lithuania.
- Already in early September, Poland introduced a state of emergency on the border with Belarus due to illegal immigrants. The corresponding decision was made by the President of the country Andrzej Duda.
- The European Union intends to strengthen sanctions against the Lukashenka regime, including for the migration terror.
