Polish Police Use Water Cannon at Belarus Border Crossing

The Polish Ministry of Defense said water cannons and tear gas were used by security forces on Tuesday, November 16, as migrants threw stones from the Belarusian side of the Kuznica-Bruzgi border crossing.

The clashes come one day after the European Union agreed to broaden its scope for imposing sanctions on Belarus, allowing any individuals or entities “that facilitate illegal crossing of the EU’s external borders” through Belarus to face sanctions.

A spokesman for the Belarusian foreign ministry said accusations that the country was orchestrating a migration crisis were “absurd.” Credit: MSWiA via Storyful
