State of emergency over Belarus hits businesses hard

Although the restrictions resulting from the state of emergency are to apply to a small part of the country, they may cause losses for hotels or the transport and forwarding industry, writes Rzeczpospolita.. The state does not have to compensate for all damages.

Andrzej Duda will sign a regulation introducing a state of emergency on the Polish-Belarusian border zone. Mass gatherings and events will be forbidden in 183 localities.

The daily, as an example, gives Terespol, where a great festival was announced on September 12 under the slogan “Blast City” with military shows, theater performances, concerts, fairs, etc. The festival was to be held under the patronage of Deputy Prime Minister Jacek Sasin. As Rzeczpospolita writes, the mayor of Terespol, Jacek Danieluk, “counts on the possibility of postponing it to another date.” “But border protection is the most important thing,” says Danieluk, quoted by Rzeczpospolita.

“The state of emergency may mean significant losses for companies operating on the Belarusian border. These are various businesses: transport and forwarding at the border crossings in Terespol and Kuźnica, but also guesthouses in Białowieża and other places that benefit from tourism. Organizers of weddings, baptisms and similar celebrations will also lose. “- we read.
