The closure of the Bobrovniki checkpoint on the Polish-Belarusian border can create some logistical difficulties, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

According to the Russian news agency Tass, Dmitry Peskov recommended reports to clarify all details at the Transport Ministry, “Of course, some difficulties may arise. This must be analyzed before a further decision is made.”

“I think it makes sense to apply to the Transport Ministry to obtain information on how much cargo has been transported through these crossings so far,” he added.

Earlier, Warsaw announced plans to suspend traffic through the Bobrovniki-Berestovitsa checkpoint on February 10, 2023.

Poland moved to shut down a crossing point on its border with Belarus, the Polish interior ministry announced, one day after a Polish journalist was sentenced to eight years in jail by a Minsk court on charges that Poland says are politically motivated.

“Due to the important interest of state security, I decided to suspend until further notice, from February 10 this year, from 12:00, traffic at the Polish-Belarusian border crossing in Bobrowniki,” Interior Minister Mariusz Kamiński said in a statement.

Located in eastern Poland, the Bobrowniki (or Bobrownikach in Polish) checkpoint is one of six points of passage on the Polish-Belarusian border.
