He added that he was not there during the police operation. He showed up there later.

– Our point has been operating since October 15th. Everything is done within the law. Humanitarian aid is being carried. Our volunteers have undergone all the necessary training on how to operate at the border – previously a state of emergency, now a restricted zone. During our interventions, we met many times with police and Border Guard officers. There were no objections to our work – said Kiersnowski.
