‘Poland is obliged to secure the Polish-Belarusian border’: statement

Statement by Stanisław Żaryn, spokesman for Poland’s security services chief:

“…We are dealing with an attempt to use an artificial migration route to destabilize first the Belarusian-Lithuanian, Belarusian-Latvian and now mainly Belarusian-Polish border. Belarusian state structures are involved in bringing migrants to their territory, mainly from the Middle East. More and more often they come to Belarus also from Russia….”

“Poland is obliged to secure the Polish-Belarusian border, which is also the external border of the European Union and NATO. The Polish government makes decisions aimed at neutralizing the actions of Belarus and Russia against the European Union.”
