Migrants Remain Camped at Poland-Belarus Border

A large group of migrants and Polish security forces remained on opposite sides of the Kuznica-Bruzgi border crossing between Belarus and Poland on Tuesday morning, November 9.

Video from Polish police shows the migrants camping near a border fence. The night passed relatively calmly, according to police, with “only a few stones” thrown.

Belarusian media outlet Nexta said the migrants were mostly Iraqi Kurds.

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Tuesday that “the stability and security of the entire EU is at stake”. He continued, “This hybrid attack of Lukashenko’s regime is aimed at all of us. We will not be intimidated and will defend peace in Europe with our partners from NATO and EU.”

Poland has accused Belarus of a “deliberate escalation of tension” at the border. The EU said Belarus had made “attempts to destabilise the EU and its member states by facilitating irregular migration for political purposes.” Credit: Podlaska Policja via Storyful
