For weeks, thousands of migrants have gathered at the Belarus border with Poland, enduring freezing temperatures and terrible conditions. The West has accused Belarus of artificially creating the crisis by bringing in would-be migrants from abroad and taking them to the border with promises of an easy crossing into the European Union.
