The crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border
There is a migration crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border, triggered by the regime of the President of Belarus, Alyaksandr Lukashenka. The situation worsened earlier this week, when migrants gathered at the border crossing in Kuźnica and tried forcibly to get to Poland. These attempts are repeated daily at various points on the border.
There is a state of emergency in the border area. Journalists are not allowed to work there, and therefore information from there is transmitted almost exclusively through official government sources.
