Alexander Lukashenko ordered to place illegal immigrants, who were watered with water cannons by the Polish military, in the logistics center at the Bruzgi checkpoint. Women and children were sent there first.
This was reported by the BelTA Telegram channel .
On November 16, hundreds of illegal immigrants made new attempts to break through the border into Poland. In turn, Polish law enforcement officers used water cannons. Illegals were pretty much watered, despite the fact that it was already cold enough. As a result, many were soaked to the skin.
Some of the refugees decided to leave the checkpoint. They were sent to a transport and logistics center near the border. There they organized a special area where people can dry off, warm up and sleep. First of all, women and children will be accommodated there.https://www.unian.net/player/fCQNV13aRefugees soaked and frozen were relocated to the Logistics Center at the border checkpoint
Migration crisis on the border of Belarus and EU countries
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. On the morning of November 10, it became known about the breakthrough of two large groups of refugees from the territory of Belarus to Poland.
The government in Warsaw accuses 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 sanctions by Western countries against Belarus.
In addition, since November 10, due to the migration crisis, Lithuania has introduced a state of emergency in the border zone with Belarus.
On November 10, the NSDC made a decision to strengthen border protection and prepare for scenarios that take place on the Belarusian-Polish border.
On November 11, Interior Minister Denis Monastyrsky said that the border with Belarus would be additionally guarded by 8.5 thousand servicemen of the State Border Service, the National Guard and the police.
