Poland declares emergency on Belarus border due to Afghan refugees

While rights activists claim that Poland provides adequate medical care to stranded migrants, Warsaw says it is the responsibility of Belarus

Amid a surge in illegal migrants from Afghanistan and Iraq, Poland had started barbed wire fences.

groups working with migrants are worried that the emergency order can limit their work and leave refugees stranded.

After a surge of illegal migration from the Belarus border, Polish President Andrzej Duda has declared a state of emergency. Blaming Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko for the influx of migrants, Warsaw has said that the strongman is trying to put pressure on the European Union due to the sanctions it has imposed on Minsk. This is the first of its kind emergency order since the communist rule in Poland. It includes a on mass gatherings. It has limited people’s movements for the next 30 days.

Calling the situation on the border was “difficult and dangerous,” Polish presidential spokesman Blazej Spychalski said the country is taking measures to ensure the safety of the country and the bloc.

However, Belarus Foreign Vladimir Makei denied the accusation and blamed ”western politicians” for the border situation.

While rights activists claim that Poland provides adequate medical care to stranded migrants, Warsaw says that it is the responsibility of Belarus.

Following a disputed election and the forced landing of a Ryanair plane to detain a journalist, the EU had imposed economic sanctions on Belarus.

Poland began a barbed wire fence last week to curb the flow of migrants from countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan.

The EU imposed economic sanctions on Belarus following a disputed election in August 2020 and a crackdown on the opposition, and says Lukashenko has deliberately encouraged migrants to cross into Poland, Latvia and Lithuania in retaliation.

Belarus’ Foreign Vladimir Makei on 2 September blamed “Western politicians” for the situation on the borders, Belarusian state agency Belta reported.

“Belarus has always honored all the provisions of our agreements to the letter,” Makei said.

It must be noted here that Poland stands out in the crowd of European countries run by woke governments that does not embrace immigrants mindlessly or out of a misplaced sense of being humanitarian.

The word "democracy" has been misused so many times by vested interest groups to further their propaganda of de-stabilizing a govt that it has lost all meaning whatsoever.

This is how semantics change over a period of time. Usually, in a negative way.
