“Today they have radically changed this policy, trying to punish Belarus in this way, accusing it of waging some kind of hybrid war against the European Union. and cannot go”, Makei said in an interview with RIA Novosti.
Last Monday, more than two thousand refugees in Belarus from Africa and the Middle East came to the Polish border. The Polish authorities regarded this as “the largest attempt at mass penetration by force” and increased border security.
Polish Prime Minister Morawiecki called what was happening a gross violation of the security and inviolability of borders. The authorities pulled 16 thousand security officials to the border line. President of the country Andrzej Duda accused the Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko of a “massive hybrid attack”.
