About 1,000 migrants stranded at the border with Poland in Belarus spent the night in an overnight camp not far from the border. Belarusian sources reported this on Wednesday.
The Belarusian state agency BELTA published pictures, on Wednesday morning, of adults and children sitting in a hall with blankets and sleeping bags.
Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko on Tuesday ordered the construction of a night camp for migrants stranded on the border with Poland. In the Grodno region, a logistics center has been converted to enable women and children to spend the night.
After Tuesday’s standoff between migrants and Polish security forces, the situation at the border crossing in the Polish village of Koznica calmed down. Polish security forces used water cannons and tear gas against stone-throwing migrants. The Polish Ministry of Defense believed that Belarus had given the migrants grenades.
The European Union accuses the Belarusian regime of luring people to the Polish border with lies. President Lukashenko, often referred to as “Europe’s last dictator,” denies allowing people from Afghanistan and the Middle East into Belarus and taking them to the EU’s external borders in an orderly fashion.
