Morawiecki blamed Russia for the refugee crisis on the border at the extraordinary meeting of the Polish Parliament (Sejm) due to the refugee crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border.
Morawiecki stated that his country’s security and borders have been attacked so severely for the first time in 30 years.
Stating that Russia follows an imperial policy, Morawiecki said, “Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko is following the instructions of Russian President Vladimir Putin during the refugee crisis.”
Polish Interior Minister Mariusz Kaminski said that there are currently 2-4 thousand refugees on the Belarus-Poland border.
Emphasizing that Poland will not be a refugee route, Kaminski said, “Russia wants to permanently destabilize Eastern and Central Europe and the European Union (EU) as a whole by triggering a migration crisis. Lukashenko’s political goal is to impose himself by forcing the EU to recognize its own power and lift sanctions,” he said.
On the other hand, Polish News Agency (PAP) announced that the President of the European Council, Charles Michel, will visit Poland on Wednesday and meet with Prime Minister Morawiecki due to the refugee crisis.
– Belarus has declared that it will not keep asylum seekers
In his speech on 6 July, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko recalled Belarus’ suspension of the Readmission Agreement with the EU and stated that after the West’s attitude towards Russia and Belarus, they could no longer take people fleeing the war themselves.
Stating that they will not keep refugees coming to Belarus to go to Europe, Lukashenko said, “Those who think that we will close our borders with Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine and become a ‘settlement place’ for refugees from Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Tunisia. They’re wrong. We’re not going to hire anyone. They don’t come to us, they go to an enlightened, warm, comfortable Europe.” he said.
The EU accuses the Belarusian administration of “using irregular migration as a tool and trying to destabilize the Union in this way” by sending asylum seekers from countries such as Iraq to the borders of EU countries Poland, Lithuania and Latvia.
It is stated that about 10 people lost their lives due to these reasons in the last 2 months, when the refugees trapped between the two countries struggled to survive under difficult conditions due to cold weather conditions and malnutrition.
