Poland is preparing for a major onslaught by migrants on the border. Polish border guards say Belarusian counterparts are providing thousands of stranded migrants with instructions, equipment and weapons to make their way. An attack would be planned on the Kuznica border, one of the two main crossing points from Poland to Belarus. A spokesman for the Polish border forces told MailOnline: “After a quiet night in the vicinity of the Kuznica camp, we are observing the presence of armed officers from the Belarusian services. There is a lot of unrest among the migrants and there is even a van for television broadcasts. Some tents are starting to disappear. Migrants receive instructions, equipment and gas from Belarusian services. We understand that a great attempt to cross the border is being prepared. “
Putin: “We have nothing to do with the migrant crisis in Belarus.” Moscow separates itself from Minsk
Berlin: stop migrant flights or harsh sanctions. “All airlines should follow the example of Turkish Airlines and others and unambiguously refuse to be involved in the smuggling operation” of Lukashenko’s migrants. «Those who fail to do so will face harsh penalties. EU overflight and landing rights are no longer inviolable ». Thus in a note the German Foreign Minister, Heiko Maas, on the eve of the meeting with his European counterparts in Brussels to agree on new sanctions against Minsk. In recent days, Turkish Airlines and Belavia announced the interruption of connections to Minsk for Syrian, Iraqi and Afghan citizens.
