The spokesman of the minister coordinator of special services, Stanisław Żaryn, wrote on Twitter on Tuesday that “in the evening, Belarusian officers appeared in the place where the Polish border was attacked and from where, for example, stones were thrown at Poles, they behaved as if they were securing evidence in investigation “.

He attached a short film to the entry in which you can see a group of men dressed in black, wearing disposable gloves and picking up various items from the ground. Uniformed officers are also visible.

State of emergency

Since September 2, due to the migratory pressure in the border zone with Belarus, 183 localities in the Podlaskie and Lubelskie voivodships have been under a state of emergency. It was introduced for 30 days under the ordinance of President Andrzej Duda, issued at the request of the Council of Ministers. The Seym agreed to extend the state of emergency for another 60 days.

Journalists have no access to the area under the state of emergency. When reporting on the events at the border, the media can use almost exclusively official government recordings and information.

By the middle of next year, a steel barrier will be erected on the Podlasie section of the border with Belarus, topped with barbed wire and enriched with electronic devices. The dam will be 180 km long and 5.5 m high. Along the border, motion sensors as well as day and night cameras will be installed. The Bug River is a natural dam on the section of the Polish-Belarusian border in the Lubelskie Voivodeship.
