Over nine thousand people from Belarus, via Poland, got to Germany, informs the German police. The refugee centers are filling up. This is the case, for example, in Berlin, where more places are being prepared for people in need of help. – I look at these images, at what is happening on the Polish-Belarusian border with professional concern, but we are prepared that even more people will come – Sascha Langenbach, press spokesman for the Migrant Registration Center in Berlin, told TVN24.
According to the German police, over nine thousand migrants from Belarus, via Poland, ended up in Germany. They go to centers in Berlin, among others. One of them was TVN24 reporter Alicja Rucińska.
– Of course, people come from the Polish-Belarusian border. Most often they are people from Iraq, Yemen, but also from Afghanistan and other Arab countries. Upon arrival, they are quartered in containers, said Sascha Langenbach, spokesman for the Migrant Registration Center in Berlin
He added that migrants cannot always cook, which is why they get breakfast, lunch and dinner. “This is what the first days of migrants look like after they arrive in Berlin,” he said.
– I look at these images, at what is happening on the Polish-Belarusian border with professional care, but we are prepared that even more people will come for this reason. This is our duty and we must fulfill it, Langenbach said.
As reported by the TVN24 reporter, the migrants in the center are also provided with medical assistance. Formal matters are also dealt with there.
“I have never seen such exhausted people”
Aldona Niemczyk, an employee of the Migrant Registration Center in Berlin, told about a group of people who came from Belarus via Poland to Germany. – It was a group of young Iranians. I have never seen such exhausted people – exhausted to the limit. They almost passed out here. Dehydrated, no food, no shoes. A catastrophe simply – she said.
Berlin is running out of places. Out of 21,000, only 6,000 are available. Officials and social workers expect more of these people in the near future.
Migration crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border
There is a migration crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border, triggered in the unanimous opinion of the West by the authorities in Minsk, accused of waging a hybrid war. Poland and other EU member states claim that this is Alyaksandr Lukashenka’s retaliation for sanctions against Belarus for violating human rights.
