Lukashenka instructed to organize overnight accommodation for migrants at the border

The authorities of the Grodno region, according to Lukashenka's instructions, will place women and children of migrants in a logistics center near the border with Poland.


The Belarusian authorities are organizing the distribution of food and accommodation for women and children from migrants who are on the border with Poland. Such an order was given by the President of the country Alexander Lukashenko, according to the Telegram channel “ Pool of the First '', close to the press service of the head of Belarus.

The order was given to the governor of the Grodno region, Vladimir Kravtsov. As the channel specified, people will be received in a logistics center located in the border area.

Later, the state news agency BelTA published photos with migrants accommodated in the logistics center.

Earlier, on November 13, Lukashenka ordered to put up tents for the distribution of humanitarian aid among migrants. Previously, the President of the country planned to place the children in sanatoriums, but the parents asked not to take them, but to “ feed them elementary '', the Pool of the First broadcast.

The installation of tents for heating women and children of migrants was also reported on November 13 BelTA. According to him, law enforcement officers, volunteers and representatives of public organizations work in the camp.

We are talking about a camp of migrants on the border of Belarus and Poland; refugees began to flock to this section of the border in early November. Illegal migrants tried to overcome the border barriers, but the Polish border guards responded with tear gas. On November 12, a small group of refugees managed to break through the border. On Tuesday, November 16, migrants pelted the Polish police with stones, garbage and sticks, the security forces responded with water cannons and smoke bombs.

The authorities of the Western countries blame Minsk for what is happening. Polish President Andrzej Duda called the attempts of migrants to cross the border a “ massive hybrid attack '' authorities of Belarus. “ At the last moment, they were deliberately taken off the road into the forest so that they attack the Polish border in a place where there is no official crossing, '' & mdash; he pointed out. The Polish authorities, Duda noted, intended to send humanitarian aid for migrants to the Belarusian side, but Minsk refused to accept it.

Lukashenko claimed that European countries themselves “ destroyed '' states from which people flee. “ People are fleeing the war and fleeing wherever they were invited, '' & mdash; he said.

On November 14, British Foreign Minister Elizabeth Truss expressed confidence that Russia “ bears clear responsibility '' for the migration crisis on the Belarusian-Polish border. In her opinion, Moscow should put pressure on Minsk to resolve the situation. Russian President Vladimir Putin, in response, denied the country's involvement in what is happening. “ We have absolutely nothing to do with this, just not at all! '' & mdash; the president said. According to Putin, the accusations against Moscow are an attempt to transfer problems from a sore head to a healthy one.

The Russian President also said that he considers the Western countries to be guilty of what is happening. “ They themselves are to blame. I said why: for political, military, and economic reasons. We ourselves have created the conditions for thousands and hundreds of thousands of people to go, '', & mdash; he said, noting that these countries are now “ looking for the culprits '' to shift responsibility.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova noted that the British military provided assistance to the United States for the “ occupation '' Iraq, and therefore London has a 'clear historical responsibility' for the consequences.
