We are increasing the readiness of our forces in response to the aggressive actions of the Belarusian side – escorting thousands of people towards the Polish border – said Colonel Marek Pietrzak, spokesman for the Territorial Defense Forces on Monday.
At the Polish-Belarusian border “the largest attempt to date by force to enter Poland by force has begun” – said in the morning the spokesman of the minister for the coordinator of special services, Stanisław Żaryn. The entry was accompanied by a video showing a group of several hundred people with luggage marching along the road. Just before 1 p.m., the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration informed that “Polish services prevented the migrants’ attempt to forcibly break through to the Polish side south of the border crossing in Kuźnica. “The situation has been brought under control.
“We are increasing the readiness of our forces in response to the aggressive actions of the Belarusian side – escorting thousands of people towards the Polish border,” WOT spokesman Col. Marek Pietrzak wrote on Twitter on Monday.
“We are raising the alert of our forces’ readiness to support the Border Guard! From 10.30 a.m. 100 percent of 1,2,4 BOT soldiers are ready for action within 6 hours. Soldiers! Check the equipment and means of communication, notify employers and relatives!” – we read on Twitter of the Territorial Defense Forces.
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 deliberate actions by Belarus. They believe that this is Minsk’s response to the sanctions.
