Marcin Przydacz, deputy minister of foreign affairs, argued on TVN24 that children from Michałów “do not live in any forest”. He also commented on the words of the president of PiS, Jarosław Kaczyński, who assured that the group of migrants in question was “certainly not in danger”.
Journalists who, due to the state of emergency, are not allowed to enter the border zone, have been trying for two weeks to find out what happened to a group of migrants – including women and children – for whom the Border Guard applied the push back procedure and took them from Michałów back to the border.
Last weekend the recording appeared on the internet showing a group of several dozen migrants wandering probably on the Belarusian side, very close to the border with Poland. Most likely, you can see the children of migrants from Michałów. This is indicated by their appearance and characteristic elements of clothing.
Przydacz: children from Michałów do not wander in any forest
On October 7, at a press conference, Jarosław Kaczyński, deputy prime minister for security and PiS president, was asked about the fate of the children from Michałów. – They were simply transported back to Belarus in some safe place with their parents. Certainly they are not in any danger because of this – he replied.
Marcin Przydacz, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, was asked about the words of the PiS chairman on Tuesday in “Rozmowa Piaseckiego”. – Apparently, President Kaczyński has some additional information about the condition of these children. Hence these words – he said.
He argued that children from Michałów “do not wander in any forest”. – This is now a question for the Belarusian side, what is he doing with the migrants he brings here from the other side of the world and is deliberately trying to smuggle them across the border – added the deputy head of diplomacy.
As he said, “the whole discussion around the border focuses on the humanitarian aspect”. – This is an important aspect, and you should also focus on it. But I miss the discussion about the security aspect of the Polish state. The discussion is still about the situation of children and this is the emotional blackmail that Alyaksandr Lukashenka is trying to use, said Przydacz.
