A number of industrial goods, including cars, will not be allowed to be exported outside of Belarus from September 23. The restrictions will also affect export processes with member countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).
“To establish a temporary ban on the export of goods outside the Republic of Belarus to the member states of the Eurasian Economic Union according to the list according to the appendix, regardless of the country of origin,” reads the decree published on the national legal portal of the republic. The document clarifies that in addition to cars, the list includes motorcycles, bicycles, medical devices, smartphones, nuclear reactors, etc.
The ban does not apply to products whose Belarusian or Russian origin is confirmed by a certificate, or goods with a one-time export license. The rule will remain in effect until March next year.
In April, the Belarusian authorities restricted the export of buckwheat, sugar, salt, butter and other groceries from the country. Then this decision was explained by the increased demand for food products in the border areas.
