595 foreign nationals were refused entry to Belarus last week.

"The majority of them are well-built young men who were unable to explain or justify the purpose of their visit to Belarus," Spokesman for the State Border Control Committee Anton Bachkouski said on Monday, adding that mainly the citizens of Ukraine, Poland and Lithuania among them, were not allowed into the country.

Belarusian authorities claim that the protests in Belarus are coordinated by 'puppeteers' from those three countries.
