MINSK, 18 September (BelTA) – The Hasidic Jewish pilgrims are passing the border control to return to Belarus, BelTA learned from the press service of the State Border Committee of Belarus.

“As of 14:00, 18 September, around ten foreign citizens still remained in the territory between the checkpoints Novaya Guta and Novyye Yarilovichi,” the committee noted.

On 17 September, the Belarusian border service increased the number of staff at the Novaya Guta checkpoint, because most of the stranded Hasidic pilgrims had decided to return to Belarus. “This helped us handle more than 1,000 of these foreign nationals in one day. They left the border in an organized way,” the committee said.
