The State Border Committee of Belarus announced an attempt by the Polish security forces on Wednesday night to stop the passage of illegal immigrants into their territory with automatic bursts. Information about this appeared on the website of the department.
Representatives of the State Border Committee note that a group of “desperate refugees”, due to the impossibility of legally submitting an application for protection to the EU, made an attempt to independently proceed to the territory of Poland. In response, the Polish security forces met the illegal immigrants with automatic rounds.
The department reported that Belarusian military covered this section of the border to prevent possible provocations.
Earlier it was reported that the Polish security forces used gas against refugees, forcing them to the territory of Belarus. Dmitry Polyansky, the first deputy representative of the Russian Federation to the UN, then stated that the EU ignores Poland’s cruel treatment of migrants.
