The political crisis is not over. Belarus is still interested in escalating and continuing operations against Poland, Stanisław Żaryn, spokesman of the minister for the special services coordinator, wrote on Twitter late in the evening. He added that groups of foreigners “prepared to attack Poland” would still be transferred to our border.
On Friday, the police in Podlasie shared a recording of the deserted camp near Kuźnica on the Polish-Belarusian border on Twitter. The Border Guard also informed that the services were cleaning up the abandoned camp site near the border crossing in Bruzgi. The Border Guard published a video on social media from the place where people who were trying to get to Poland through the border with Belarus were camping. It shows people who, on the Belarusian side, are carrying out cleanup work in the place where the migrant camp used to be.
“Some comments and interpretations of the recent events in Belarus echo the theses that the conflict is dying out. No, this political crisis is not over. Belarus is still interested in escalating and continuing operations against Poland,” Stanisław Żaryn wrote on Friday evening on Twitter.
He added that “Belarusians will continue to transfer to our border groups of foreigners prepared to attack Poland, Polish soldiers and officers.” Attacks on our border line will continue, there will be attempts to destabilize the country, “he wrote.
“Belarusians will continue to be aggressive towards our people, they will cover attempts to cross the border, organize provocations … Belarus has not withdrawn from the aggressive operation. These actions are part of Russia’s plan to destabilize Eastern Europe. This crisis will not end like this. . “- we read in the next entry.
The crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border
There is a migration crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border, triggered by the regime of the President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenka. It is about an organized action of bringing migrants to Belarus, so that they later try to cross the border with Poland illegally.
The situation worsened a week ago, when a large group of foreigners gathered near the Kuźnica-Bruzgi border crossing on the Belarusian side of the border and made an attempt to force the border through. The group finally moved to the border crossing itself, where there was an attack on the border on Tuesday. Among other things, stones were thrown towards the Polish services. Some officers were injured.
The camp created at the crossing finally emptied, and the migrants were directed by the Belarusian services to the logistics center. According to Żaryn on Twitter, a “real town” is already being built around the center, in which a shop, food-truck and exchange office have been established.
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 covered by the state of emergency. When reporting on events at the border, the media can use almost exclusively information published by services and representatives of state authorities.
