Someone already mentioned it in the trucking thread, but Belarus and Russia have already abolished border controls since April 1st. Kazakhstan is due to join by July 1st to form the Customs Union of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia

Belarusian law website:
http://law.by/work/EnglPortal.nsf/0/...8?OpenDocument
MINSK, 1 April (BelTA) – The Transport Inspectorate of the Transport Ministry of Belarus abolished traffic control at the Belarusian-Russian border on 1 April. Transport control will be exercised at the external border of the Union State.

According to the inspectorate, in accordance with the Belarusian-Russian intergovernmental agreement on transport (road) control at the external border of the Union State, when a vehicle en route to Russia crosses the Union State external border and enters the territory of Belarus, Belarusian transport control authorities exercise transport control required by Belarusian laws and implement a number of agreed actions.

These include the examination of the weight parameters and dimensions of the vehicle for compliance with Russian standards, and the data specified in the special permit for transportation of large and (or) heavy cargo on the territory of Russia. The Belarusian transport authorities also check if a carrier has a permit to travel through the territory of Russia, if it corresponds to the type of declared shipment and also the compliance of the characteristics of the vehicle to the requirements provided in such permit. They also check the availability of a special permit for transportation of bulky, heavy or hazardous goods on the territory of Russia, and the availability of transport permits from third countries to Russia. Besides, the Belarusian side gives the carrier a coupon if the shipment is carried out without a permit to travel through Russia, and also in cases if the shipment is carried out in accordance with a multilateral permit.

In accordance with the agreement, if the Belarusian transport authorities detect irregularities in the controlled parameters of a vehicle, the absence of the necessary documents or irregularities in the documents, they issue a driver a notice of the deficiencies identified and advise him on the documents to be obtained before arriving in the territory of the other side. They also advise a carrier on the checkpoints on the other side, considering the route of a carrier, where a carrier must present proof that the discrepancies in controlled parameters of the vehicle have been addressed, and (or) the documents specified in the notice.

After getting such a notice a carrier must get a confirmation at the Russian checkpoint that the irregularities were eliminated. The vehicle can leave the territory of the Union State only after the carrier presents the notice with the Russian conformation.

“Thus, starting from 1 April in case of any inconsistencies regarding the parameters of the transport vehicle or the amount of compulsory documents including for Belarusian vehicles, corresponding notices will be issued, and the norms stipulated in the agreement will be applied,” the inspectorate said.

The Transport Inspectorate will issue a number of Russian permits to/from third countries to secure availability of Russian permits for the Belarusian transport vehicles when entering the territory of the Union State.

“The vehicle (transport) control at the checkpoints of the Transport Inspectorate of Belarus at the Belarusian-Russian border was abolished on 1 April. Only weight measuring inspectorates will operate on the Belarusian-Russian border,” the inspectorate said.

I assume it is. I wonder what kind of visa you require now though. Formerly, you needed a transit-visa for Belarus and a visa for Russia to enter Russia via Belarus. It would be weird if you can enter Belarus with a transit visa and then enter Russia without a visa.

Because there is no border control on highways between Russia and Belarus, it is possible for a foreigner to enter Russia with only Belarus visa or vice versa. However, it is still illegal and also very impractical due to frequent document checks in these countries by local police. I would especially warn against being caught without a visa in Belarus

I went to Moscow by train last summer and there was no border control between Belarus and Russia. On my way in from Poland they only stamped my Belorussian transit visa, so I entered Russia without a stamped visa. I don't know how much of a problem that is though. On my way back there was no border control as well between Belarus and Russia. However, in Brest they stamped both my Belorussian and Russian visa. IMO it would be a lot easier if you'd only need one visa to visit any of these countries, just like the Schengen visa. I'm curious what the future will bring in this matter.

I don't think it's wise to enter Russia without visa.
