Warsaw / Minsk – The Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko has ordered the establishment of a night camp for migrants near the Polish border. In the Grodno region, a logistics center is being converted so that women and children can stay overnight, the state agency Belta reported on Tuesday evening. The attached photos show how people spread mats and blankets in a hall.
After clashes between migrants and Polish uniformed men, the situation at the Kuznica-Brusgi border crossing had calmed down somewhat. In the morning, according to reports from Poland and Belarus, Polish security forces used water cannons against people who wanted to cross the border facility in the direction of the EU. Warsaw and Brussels accuse Lukashenko, who has repeatedly been criticized as the “last dictator in Europe”, of targeting people from crisis regions such as Afghanistan and Iraq in order to smuggle them into the EU.
