Novi Yarylovychi checkpoint on border with Belarus resumes work

The Novi Yarylovychi entry-exit checkpoint on the border with Belarus in Chernihiv region has resumed its work. About 550 cars are waiting in line to enter the country, according to the press service of the State Customs Service of Ukraine.

“The Novi Yarylovychi entry-exit checkpoint on the Ukrainian-Belarusian border in Chernihiv region resumed its work. Restrictive measures were introduced due to the spread of coronavirus disease. The closure of the Novi Yarylovychi checkpoint led to a long queue of vehicles at the Vystupovychi checkpoint. About 550 cars are waiting in line to enter Ukraine and 250 vehicles to leave the country,” the report says.

As Ukrinform reported, more than 1,000 Hasidic Jewish pilgrims arrived at the Belarusian-Ukrainian border on September 14 and were stranded in the neutral zone between the Belarusian and Ukrainian checkpoints. They were not allowed to enter Ukraine due to the ban on the entry of foreigners until September 28 related to the prevention of the spread of COVID-19. The Novi Yarylovychi checkpoint was closed from September 16.

The pilgrims explained their arrival from Belarus to the line of the Ukrainian border by their desire to come to Uman, Cherkasy region, for the traditional celebration of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah.

On September 18, Hasidic pilgrims left the border territory where they had been since the beginning of the week.
