“In connection with the protests in Barcelona, we urge Belarusians not to visit crowded public places, to observe elementary precautions in crowded places, to closely watch documents and valuables,” the embassy cautions.
“There may be disruptions in public transport, including en-route to the airport. Please make your travel plans accordingly,” the embassy advised.
