VLADIVOSTOK, 9 nov – Moscow hopes that the West will not avoid responsibility for the situation on the border between Poland and Belarus, said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.
“We very much hope that the West, the very collective one, will not relieve itself of this responsibility,” she said on the air of the TV channel. “Russia 1”… According to her, the moment of responsibility has come for the idea, promoted by the West for many years, that “life is only there, in the West, by high standards.”
On Monday, the State Border Committee of Belarus reported that a large group of refugees from the Middle 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 many women and children, have stopped in front of the Polish barriers on the border line.
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.
