Poland plans to build on the border by mid-2022 wall with Belarus .
The head of the Polish Ministry of Internal Affairs Mariusz Kaminsky said this on the air of the radio station RMF FM.
“There is already a very specific construction plan. By the end of the first half of next year. The length is 180 kilometers, the height is 5.5 meters, a very professional engineering fence,” he said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, in early November in Belarus a large group of migrants from crisis regions arrived at the border with Poland. The people are under the control of the armed Belarusian security officials, who determined the direction of movement of migrants.
The Polish authorities ordered to strengthen the protection of the border with Belarus. Also, the protection of their borders was strengthened by the Baltic countries. In particular, the construction of a 508-kilometer wall on the border with Belarus has begun in Lithuania.
Migrants regularly break through the Polish border.
The government in Warsaw and the EU accuse Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko of organizing the delivery of refugees from crisis regions to the external border of the European Union.
At the end of May, Lukashenka announced that his country would no longer interfere with the passage of migrants to the EU – thus the official Minsk reacted to the tightening of Western sanctions against Belarus.
Ukraine has strengthened the protection of its border with Belarus.
