FSB: We cannot check everyone at Belarusian border

Vital Ruhain, Euroradio

Russia has introduced a temporary passport control at the Belarusian border, social networks reported on Tuesday.

The passport control for Belarusians entering Russia is caused by the enhanced security measures in the period of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Sochi.

Euroradio asked the Russian Federal Security Service if they were checking everyone or just some people. Bryansk Oblast FSB replied:

"We can only check some people. There is no way to check everyone’s passports…”

The passport control at the Russian border will be preserved until the end of February or the beginning of March, Euroradio found out.
