Poland will close the crossing on the border with Belarus due to the refugee crisis

Poland will close the border checkpoint in Kuznitsa due to the influx of illegal migrants from the territory of Belarus. Minsk stated that they see no “objective reasons” for such a decision

The Polish Border Guard Service will close the border crossing in Kuznica due to the influx of illegal migrants from the territory of Belarus, the ministry said on Twitter.

“ Due to the situation on the Polish-Belarusian border, from November 9 from 07:00 (09:00 Moscow time & mdash; RBK ) traffic at the road border crossing in Kuznitsa will be suspended, & raquo;, & mdash; the message says.

The border service asked the travelers to go to the border checkpoints in Terespol and Bobrovniki.

The State Border Committee of Belarus noted that Poland has decided to unilaterally close the border checkpoint in Kuznica. “ The Belarusian side does not see any objective reasons for making such a decision. & lt; … & gt; When the Polish checkpoint resumes its work, Belarusian services are ready to provide registration in the normal mode '', & mdash; said in the message of the department in Telegram.

On the border of Belarus with Poland and Lithuania, the migration crisis has exacerbated in recent days. It has been dragging on since the summer and began after Minsk refused to continue helping the European Union in the fight against illegal migrants. Minsk’s refusal came after the introduction of EU sanctions against Belarus, related, among other things, to the incident with the forced landing of the Ryanair plane, on which the oppositionist Roman Protasevich was flying.

On the morning of November 8, a column of migrants headed to the Polish border and came close to the border fence at the checkpoint “ Kuznitsa ''. The Belarusian border service said that “ the indifference and inhuman attitude of the Polish authorities prompted the refugees to take such a step of despair. '' Minsk rejects these accusations.

Against the background of the aggravation of the situation, Poland and Lithuania have pulled security forces to the border, including the army. Some migrants try to break through the barbed wire fence with cutters and shovels. They were dispersed with tear gas. Belarusian border guards claim that shooting was heard from Polish territory.
