Construction of a dam on the border with Belarus
By the middle of next year, a steel fence topped with barbed wire and enriched with electronic devices is to be erected on the border with Belarus. The dam along the border with Belarus will be erected over a length of 180 kilometers in Podlasie. The Bug River is a natural dam in the Lublin region. The dam will be 5.5 meters high. Along the border, motion sensors as well as day and night cameras will be installed.
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. At the end of September, the Seym agreed to extend the state of emergency for another 60 days.
