The state of emergency at the border with Belarus
A state of emergency has been in force on the border zone since September 2. Journalists and activists from non-governmental organizations, among others, are not allowed there. All available information comes from the Border Guard and government officials. The state of emergency, initially imposed for 30 days, was extended by another 60 last week. According to the rulers, the migration crisis at the border is caused by the regime of Alyaksnadr Lukashenka. Belarus’s actions are called a “hybrid war against Poland”.
