The United States strongly condemns the political use of migrants and the callous and inhuman actions at the border, State Department spokesman Ned Price said on Monday.

On Monday morning, the media published information about a large group of migrants planning to cross the Belarusian border with Poland. They are located near the border crossing in Kuźnica on the Belarusian side. Migrants tried to break through the borders, destroying security and attacking Polish officers. There may be several hundred to two thousand people there. The Ministry of National Defense informed in the afternoon that the Ministry of Interior and Administration and soldiers had managed to stop the first mass attempt to cross the border. The uniforms used tear gas against the forcing. Currently, migrants have set up a camp in the Kuźnica region. They are guarded by the Belarusian services.


US reaction

– We call on the regime (Alyaksandr Lukashenka – ed.) To immediately stop its campaign of organizing and forcing the influx of irregular migrants across its borders to Europe, Ned Price said during a press conference on Monday.

“As long as the Belarusian regime refuses to honor its international obligations, undermines security and peace in Europe, and persecutes people who want freedom, we will not reduce our pressure,” added a US State Department spokesman.

Solidarity with Poland in the face of the situation on the eastern border was also expressed, inter alia, by the Baltic states – Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and the Czech Republic.
