Since the spring, the number of attempts to illegally cross the Belarusian border with Lithuania, Latvia and Poland by migrants from the Middle East, Africa and other regions has increased sharply. The European Union and the Member States emphasize that this is the result of the deliberate actions of Alyaksandr Lukashenka’s regime, which instrumentally uses migrants in response to sanctions.

On Monday, a large group of migrants crossed the Belarusian side towards the border with Poland. Migrants gathered in the vicinity of Kuźnica. The Ministry of National Defense informed that day that the services of the Ministry of Interior and Administration and soldiers managed to stop the first mass attempt to cross the border. Currently, migrants have created a camp in the Kuźnica region, they are guarded by Belarusian services.
