All voice announcements in the Minsk Metro system are made in Belarusian and English, effective from 10 February. English has now returned to the Minsk Metro in light of the the 5-day visa-free regime that will come into force on February 12. Citizens from 80 states, including all countries of the European Union, United States, Canada and other 'strategic partners' will be able to spend 5 days in Belarus without a visa on condition that they arrive/depart at/from the Minsk international airport aka National Airport Minsk, Euroradio. Minsk metro had English announcements only once: during the 2014 World Ice Hockey Championships.
