WARSAW, 9 Nov – Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that the situation on the Polish-Belarusian border is part of a larger “coordinated attack”, a “new type” war.
“We are convinced that the operations on the eastern border of Poland, which are taking place, are part of a larger operation, a very coordinated attack, which is in the nature of a new type of war … The weapons used are known in past wars, but in this case, extremely effective The Soviets were masters in this, and now they are Russians … This is misinformation, “Morawiecki said at an extraordinary meeting in the Polish Sejm.
Earlier, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said that the West should not pretend that what is happening on the border between Poland and Belarus is a kind of “hybrid operation” by Lukashenko with the support of Russia, this is a lie.
On Monday, the State Border Committee of Belarus reported that a large group of refugees from the countries of the East and Africa went to the border of Belarus with Poland. In the evening, the department said that the situation with refugees on the border of the republic with Poland remains extremely tense: more than 2 thousand refugees, including a significant number of women and children, have stopped in front of the Polish barriers on the border line. The Polish security forces do not let them through, the migrants made attempts to overcome the obstacles.
Recently, Lithuania, Latvia and Poland reported an increase in the number of detained illegal migrants on the border with Belarus, accusing Minsk of creating a migration crisis. Minsk rejects all charges. In connection with the situation, the President of Poland introduced a state of emergency on the territories bordering with Belarus, the army and the police were involved in protecting the border. President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko noted that Minsk will no longer restrain the flow of illegal migrants to the EU countries: because of the West’s sanctions, there is “neither money, nor effort.” The border guards of Belarus have repeatedly stated about the forcible expulsion of migrants by Lithuania, Poland and Latvia to the Belarusian territory.
