Two groups of migrants managed to break through the border fence between Belarus and Poland by crossing the border: this is what the Polish agency PAP wrote, according to various German media. The breach occurred in the villages of Krynki and Bialowieza.
On the border between Poland and Belarus, thousands of migrants have been gathering for days and trying to enter Europe. For the West, it is Lukashenko’s regime that pushes them to storm the gates, and Warsaw has openly accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of masterminding the crisis.
Poland, the migrant crisis continues: thousands flock to the border with Belarus
The Polish Minister of Defense, Mariusz Paszak, announced that during the night there were already several attempts to violate the border with Belarus: “There are already 15,000 men on the border, soldiers of the Polish army. The number has been increased and, of course, it can be increased further if necessary.” Belarus accused Polish forces of beating some migrants, specifically four people of Kurdish origin, who tried to enter the European Union, while criticism of Minsk increased for the “exploitation” of migrants stranded at the border.
The Belarusian Border Guard Service said in a statement that the four were “arrested in Poland where they tried to seek protection and refugee status”, and published pictures of four men, some wearing bloodstained clothes and one with injuries to his hands. faces. “Judging by the numerous casualties on the bodies of migrants, the Polish security forces mistreated people and, using force, pushed them over a barbed wire fence on the border with Belarus,” the statement said.
European Council President Charles Michel met with Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki in Warsaw this morning. The Polish government accuses Minsk of pushing thousands of people towards the country’s borders, while Belarusian President Lukashenko denounced “the deployment of Polish regular forces on the border,” stressing that his country “will not bow to the European Union.” “The use of vulnerable migrants as part of a hybrid attack is beyond disdain. The EU will not accept any attempt to exploit migrants,” Michel said yesterday on Twitter, expressing his “full solidarity” with EU member states.
