EU condemns "cynical" use of migrants at Belarus border

European Council President Charles Michel has condemned Belarus of weaponizing migrants in a "cynical and shocking way”.

Speaking on Tuesday (November 9), Michel called for a decision to be made about the use of EU money to pay for infrastructure to protect its frontiers.

In October, Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said EU funds could not be used for hard border infrastructure such as drones or fences, but Michel suggested the matter was not settled by saying that "Polish and Baltic borders are EU borders, one for all and all for one".
