Poland strengthens security at Belarusian border


He said his ministry, together with the Interior Ministry, which is responsible for police and border guards, is “prepared to defend the Polish border.

He also posted video footage of what appeared to be a large group of migrants just across the border in Belarus.

A spokeswoman for Polish border guards, Ewelina Szczepanska, said the presence of guards, police and military personnel has been stepped up at the border.

She said videos posted online could be seen of migrants heading for the Kuznica crossing in the northeast.

Polish security service spokesman Stanislaw Zaryn posted a video on Twitter showing hundreds of people walking down a street.

“Very disturbing information coming from the border,” Zaryn added

Since the summer, Poland has come under increasing pressure from migrants from the Middle East and Africa trying to enter the EU. Poland blocks these attempts or sends back those who cross into Belarus.

Warsaw and the EU say it is an organized move by the Belarusian government to destabilize the bloc in retaliation for Western sanctions.

Polish border guards reported incidents of hostile behavior and threats from Belarusian forces directed across the border against Polish forces.
