LITHUANIA-BELARUS-BORDER-MIGRATION-DIPLOMACY

People with bicycles stand at the border crossing point Sumskas between Lithuania and Belarus on August 12, 2023 next to a sign reading "Do not risk your safety -- do not travel to Belarus. You may fail to come back". Next week, Lithuania will shut two out of its six existing border checkpoints with Belarus, including the crossing in Sumskas. The government's decision came as a response to escalating tensions between the two neighbours, with Vilnius warning of provocations threat posed by Minsk -- and the Wagner fighters now based in Belarus following their short-lived rebellion in Russia.
