The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs called on its citizens to leave the territory of Belarus immediately. The call is connected with the ongoing military special operation in Ukraine, as well as the closure of the airspace of this country.

The statement of the French diplomatic department strongly recommends that citizens of the country refrain from traveling to Belarus in the near future. "Any trips to Belarus are not formally welcome", - the message on the ministry's website says.

Those who are already in this country are advised to leave it immediately. You can leave the country by car through border crossings with Lithuania, Poland or Latvia. The borders with these countries remain open. At the same time, those wishing to go to Poland were reminded that they can only use the Brest-Terespol checkpoint.

Earlier, joint exercises of the united group of troops of Russia and Belarus began on the territory of Belarus. At that time, the United States stated that they did not see any prerequisites for the participation of the Belarusian military in the special operation. At the same time, the Ukrainian military began to build fortifications on the country's border with Belarus. The fortification is being built in the Rivne region of Ukraine.
