The US chief of diplomacy declared that Minsk was doing “a terrible harm to make migrants pawns in its devastating efforts.” “It has to stop,” he stressed.

He added that US attention continued to focus on the situation at the border, and suggested again in a few days that sanctions should be imposed on Minsk. Earlier, the diplomat said that the US was coordinating with the European Union the adoption of new restrictions on the Lukashenka regime.

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.
