German citizen illegally crosses Belarus border on bicycle

A bike rider from Germany, 43, who intended to get to Georgia, was stopped in Belarus by Brest border guards.

The foreigner had no documents except for a medical insurance certificate. According to the man, he is a citizen of Germany. He mapped his route to Georgia via Belarus, but it is still unknown how he managed to get around the border crossing point.

“The foreigner has been detained for the check of the identity. A case under Art. 23.29 (illegal border crossing) and Art. 23.55 (violation of rules of stay) of the Administrative Code has been initiated,” the Border Committee reported.
