As the expert notes, Lukashenka followed the path of Turkey in the issue of refugees and decided to use the situation so that Belarus could receive political and economic benefits. The observer notes that Lukashenka has two ways to convert political capital in the form of refugees.

First, the European Union can be forced to pay compensation to Belarus for keeping migrants at the border. Second, to use the current situation to lift or weaken the sanctions regime. Piskorski is confident that these scenarios are feasible, despite protests from Poland and the Baltic countries.

“It is quite possible that Belarus, in exchange for being able to stop the migration flow, will receive certain funds, or, perhaps, will receive a certain mitigation of the sanctions regime. Let’s see, ”the expert concluded.

Earlier, Lukashenko said that contact persons from the European Union, who were supposed to participate in resolving the migration crisis at the state border, do not get in touch, reports RT. He recalled that there are currently about 2 thousand people in the refugee camp.
