Poland Fears Massive Breakthrough of Refugees from Belarus

Poland fears a massive breakthrough of refugees from Belarus on its borders. These are Syrians, Iraqis, Afghans and others who are being brought into Belarus by the regime with the sole aim of sending them west as quickly as possible.


The Belarusian dictator Lukashenko hopes to shake neighbouring countries such as Poland and Lithuania and Germany. He wants to take revenge for European sanctions against his regime.

Images of hundreds of refugees flocking to the border with Poland can be seen on social media. They try to break through the border fence with barbed wire. Furthermore, large groups walk on the highway at the border town of Brest and in the woods there towards the west.

The Polish government in Warsaw decided to hold crisis consultations. The Polish Ministry of Defense accuses the rulers in Minsk of a new escalation of the crisis. There is already a state of emergency at the borders. The number of border soldiers has increased to 12,000.

Some of the migrants flown to Belarus come via Moscow. Lukashenko is getting full backing from Russian President Putin in his attempt to destabilize Western countries, observers report.
