Can I travel to Belarus or Ukraine with a valid Russian tourist visa?.

I'm a Syrian citizen.

  • Are you asking whether having a Russian visa (in addition to one for Ukraine, of course) will create trouble for you at the border, given the not-exactly-chummy current Russia-Ukraine relations? – Henning Makholm Aug 30 '15 at 14:48

No, and you should not generally expect countries to accept visas issued by other countries.

Ukraine requires Syrian citizens to obtain a visa, which is, as usual, done at a Ukrainian embassy or consulate. Ukrainian visa requirements are here, there is no provision for entering with a visa issued by Russia or any other foreign country.

Belarus likewise requires Syrian citizens to obtain a visa (unless you have a diplomatic Syrian passport), and the Belarusian MFA page on visas (English version) explicitly states that no visas issued by other countries are accepted.
