Another 177 people came to Belarus transiting through Poland; 11 Ukrainians passed in transit through Lithuania, and 4 through Latvia. Belarus continues to provide the necessary assistance to people arriving from the Ukrainian territory. The Belarus Red Cross and the Emergencies Ministry are running mobile warming centers near the villages of Gden, Poddobryanka and the Novaya Guta border checkpoint,” the State Border Committee said. In addition to that, mobile drugstores were set up in the village of Poddobryanka and near the Novaya Guta checkpoint.
