On the border with Belarus, the services are on high alert – around 15,000 officers are on the spot. The Border Guard is assisted by soldiers – including the 16th mechanized division and the 18th so-called Iron Division. They are also territorial as part of the Strong Support operation.
The latter posted a new recording on Twitter. “Horse patrols also perform their tasks at night,” it was written.
From September 2, due to the migratory pressure in the border zone with Belarus in 183 localities in the voivodeship In Podlasie and Lublin regions, a state of emergency is in force. 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.
When reporting on the events at the border, the media can use almost exclusively official government recordings and information. Journalists have no access to the area covered by the state of emergency.
