Poland sends reinforcements to Lithuania before the increase in migratory flow from Belarus

Poland will send police officers to Lithuania to help the authorities of that country to reinforce the border with Belarus before the strong increase in migratory flow in the region, despite the protests of activists for human rights registered this weekend in Warsaw by The concertines that the Polish authorities have built throughout their editors with Belarus to protect themselves from what the government considers a "hybrid war".

"Our agents are about to leave to Lithuania with an extremely important and difficult mission. They are invited by the Lithuanian government, which has requested our support," said Interior Polish Minister Mariusz Kaminski.

According to Kaminski, the increase in migratory flow from Belarus is "a retaliation" by the Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, and "a revenge for the fact that Lithuania and Poland have become safe places for oppositionBeltus."

The connivence of Lukashenko with Russian president, Vladimir Putin, whom the Polish government considers an enemy, has made Poland a safe destination for opponents to the Minsk regime. In Warsaw is the leader of the Svetlana Tijanovskaya opposition and after the celebration of the Olympic Games in Tokyo, the Athlete Krystsina Tsimanouskaya. The case of this athlete, criticism with the national team that directed the son of Lukashenko, tensed European relations with Belarus, a country that is already the subject of sanctions for the repression of its population and by diverting in May a Ryanair plane to force it to land at Minsk. On-board traveled the critical journalist Roman Protasevich.

Kaminski argues that Lukashenko has threatened to let the population go out with the 2015 migratory crisis. "He wants to repeat it, he wants to harm Poland, to Lithuania, to our citizens and the European Union by cynically to the people who are transported By Belarusian aircraft thousands of kilometers from the Middle East, from Africa, and telling them that the borders of the European Union are open. No, they are not open and can not be opened, "it has highlighted.

Faced with this situation, Poland has begun to build wires along its border, although local care has been largely focused on the 32 Afghan refugees who have been trapped in nobody's land near the Polish village of USnarz Górny. The government of Poland says they are on Belarusian soil and will not allow them to walk the short distance to Poland to apply for asylum.

Last week, the First Ministers of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland accused Lukashenko to use illegal migrants as a weapon for a hybrid attack that seeks to destabilize the EU. Mostly they are Iraqis, African and Afghans.
