(Reuters) - Three Belarusian opposition politicians, including protest leader Maria Kolesnikova, who disappeared on Monday, have passed border control at the Belarusian-Ukrainian border, an official of the Belarusian border guard service said.

Masked men detained Kolesnikova in central Minsk on Monday and drove her off in a van, while two of her allies disappeared later, the opposition movement has said.
