First Deputy Chairwoman of Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada and presidential envoy for the Donbas settlement Iryna Gerashchenko informs that the Permanent Mission of Belarus to the United Nations has sent a letter to the UN Secretary General and all delegations that reports on a ban on her entry into that country are untrue.

"This means one of the two things: either the center does not inform its Belarusian diplomats about 'stop lists,' where the First Deputy Chairman was included at the Federal Security Service's request, what the Interior Ministry of Belarus officially informed the Ukrainian side about. Or Minsk has admitted its mistake and scrapped the 'stop list,' because the entry permit is valid until May 25 only," she wrote on Facebook.

She said that she had received this information from her fellow diplomats from European countries, working in New York and accredited to the UN structures.

In addition, Gerashchenko posted documents of the Interior Ministry of Belarus, which initially reported the ban and then restrictions to her entry into the country.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on April 27, the Belarusian side barred Gerashchenko from entering its territory.
