According to Gomes, the main culprit of the crisis on the Belarusian border is Alyaksandr Lukashenka. However, she noted that the Belarusian dictator could never implement his plans, in which he had entangled immigrants, if not for the Kremlin’s support.

She pointed out that solving the humanitarian crisis is difficult; migrants are redirected by the “totalitarian regime of Lukashenka” along the border with Poland to various points where they try to enter the EU.

The EU has not worked out a solution to the border problem because there is no effective model for distinguishing refugees from economic migrants – Gomes evaluates. He estimates that the EU, in which Germany plays a key role, is too lenient towards Putin, who supports Lukashenka.
