On 15 September the Polish Border Guards will leave the so-called Warsaw Bridge border crossing on the Polish-Belarus border in Brest. The daily newspaper "Sovetskaya Byelorussia" writes that it is one of the requirements in respect of Poland's accession to the Schengen Zone.
The daily reminds that for the past 15 years, the customs control at the border crossing in Brest before entering the Belarus territory has been carried out by each country separately, while on entering Poland, the Polish and Belarus guards have been working together on the Warsaw Bridge.

"Sovetskaya Byelorussia" reassures that the changes will not cause any inconvenience to the operation of the border checkpoin
