Reporting from Belarus is not allowed

The total length of the Belarusian state border is 3,617 kilometers. Stretched out in a line, that’s roughly two hundred kilometers longer than the distance between The Big Apple and Salt Lake City.

Illegal entry from Poland and Lithuania is also a no brainer - an ideal challenge for endurance swimmers and skyrunning buffs.
