Migrants from Chechnya were spotted near the border of Poland with Belarus, they were found among several dozen illegal immigrants who tried to get into the European Union (EU) over the past two days. Anna Mikhalskaya, the official representative of the Polish Border Guard, spoke about this. The quote is from “Polish Radio”.
According to Mikhalskaya, 30 people entered Poland with the help of Belarusian services and were detained at the border. Several Chechens with Russian passports were found among them.
According to RIA Novosti, this is a site guarded by a Border Guard unit in Cheremkha. The first attempt to cross the border took place at about 21:00 local time (23:00 Moscow time).
Since the beginning of 2021, Polish border guards have recorded about 40 thousand attempts to illegally cross the border from Belarus. This is ten times more than in 2020. The Polish authorities and representatives of other EU countries believe that the Belarusian authorities are to blame for the outbreak of the crisis, provoking an influx of migrants.
