Border Guard: A group of aggressive foreigners tried to break into Poland

The information also shows that yesterday, in the section protected by the Border Guard Post in “Czeremsza”, a group of about 100 very aggressive foreigners, brought to the border by the Belarusian services, tried to force their way into Poland. The services prevented the border from being crossed.

In turn, the police of Podlasie state that on Saturday the officers detained “five people in connection with aiding in illegal border crossing”. “They wanted to transport 15 people who had crossed the border illegally,” informs the police.

Since the beginning of the migration crisis, the police detained around 300 people who helped to cross the border illegally.

Mateusz Morawiecki in Tallinn. “We are ready to use the escalation ladder”

On Sunday, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki held consultations with the head of the Estonian government Kaja Kallas on the situation on the eastern border.

After the meeting with Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas, the head of government stated that Poland had managed to defend the external borders of the European Union. He also pointed out that the actions of the Belarusian services may lead to an escalation of the crisis. – That is why we, on our side, are also ready to use this escalation ladder, i.e. closing subsequent crossings, closing transit and trade opportunities in order to exert economic pressure on the Lukashenka regime, said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

From the meeting in Tallinn, the Prime Minister began consultations with the heads of governments of the Baltic states, devoted to the crisis on the eastern border of the European Union.

The appeal of the Granica Group

The current migration crisis has been triggered and escalated by the regime of Alexander Lukashenka and the services subordinate to him. The aim of these activities is to destabilize the situation in Poland and to exert political pressure on the entire European Union. In the face of the real threat of deterioration of the situation on the Polish-Belarusian border, we publish:

Granica Group’s appeal to create a humanitarian corridor

Due to the growing risk of an escalation of violence on the Polish-Belarusian border, the Granica Group appealed to national and international institutions, including the United Nations, the Ombudsman and the OSCE. Activists call for monitoring the situation and putting pressure on the Polish authorities to ensure that they immediately provide humanitarian and medical aid at the border. The government was also called upon to create a humanitarian corridor.

Instead of illegal deportations, violence and ignoring the humanitarian crisis, we demand protection of life and health, opposition to torture, and protection and respect for the rights of migrants. As a state, we have a duty to provide assistance to those exploited by the Lukashenka regime – international protection for people fleeing violence, persecution or war, and for the rest of them a safe return home. It is not only a moral imperative, but also an obligation under international law.

In the face of the real threat of an escalation of the situation on the border, we appeal to the government and the Border Guard, the Ministry of Interior and Administration and the Territorial Defense Forces to respect the basic principles of humanitarianism, to take actions to save the life and health of migrants, i.e. women, children, elderly people and men who flee countries affected by conflicts, persecution and destabilization.

There can be no violence or violations of human rights at the Polish border, which we have been observing for weeks. A safe border is one where migrants can count on protection. It’s one where no one dies.
