Scandal over illegal migrants in Europe
Lithuania and Latvia, as well as Poland and Estonia accuse the Belarusian authorities of using illegal migrants as weapons in the so-called hybrid war against the EU. They called on the UN to take action against the Belarusian leadership in order to encourage foreigners to illegally cross the borders of the European Union.
Also, these countries have strengthened the protection of their borders, in particular, Lithuania has begun construction of a fence on the border with Belarus. Also, for the first time in the history of the country after the restoration of independence, Lithuania introduced a state of emergency on a part of the territory due to the critical situation with migrants on the border with Belarus.
Meanwhile, Poland has increased the combat readiness of its territorial defense troops on the border with Belarus. The Polish government accuses Lukashenka of organizing the delivery of refugees from crisis regions to the external border of the European Union.
Germany launched an investigation into Alexander Lukashenko due to the influx of illegal immigrants.
At the end of May, Lukashenko announced that his country would not interfere with the passage of migrants to the EU – this is how Minsk reacted to the tightening of sanctions by Western countries against Belarus.
The EU said it is ready to explore the possibility of introducing new sanctions in response to Lukashenka’s hybrid migration attack.
