Putin: Poland should not escalate tensions on the border with Belarus

In a telephone conversation with the President of the European Council, Charles Michel, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that the EU should influence Poland to give up steps that could lead to an escalation of tensions on the Polish-Belarusian border, the Kremlin press services quoted, quoted by AFP agencies , Reuters and EFE.

Michel and Putin spoke in favor of “the necessity of a quick solution (of the border crisis) based on the norms of international humanitarian law,” reads the Kremlin’s communiqué.

According to the statement, Putin drew Michel’s attention to “the use of tear gas, stun grenades and other special measures against migrants by Polish services.”

Putin also called on the head of the European Council that “no acts of violence against migrants should be allowed”.

The Russian leader also described the sanctions against Alyaksandr Lukashenka’s regime, which the EU considers as “counterproductive”.

Michel and Putin also talked about the situation in eastern Ukraine, and the president “expressed his concern about the provocations of the Ukrainian side leading to increased tensions” in the Donbas, and about the settlement of the conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh and the situation in Libya and Afghanistan, the Kremlin informed.

In a previous phone conversation with Putin on September 8, Michel condemned Belarus’ use of migrants as a weapon against EU Member States.

The migration crisis triggered by the regime of Alexander Lukashenka is ongoing on the Polish-Belarusian border. It is about an organized action of bringing migrants to Belarus, so that they later try to cross the border with Poland illegally.

From September 2, due to the migratory pressure in the border zone with Belarus in 183 localities in the voivodeship In Podlasie and Lublin regions, a state of emergency is in force. It was introduced for 30 days under the ordinance of President Andrzej Duda, issued at the request of the Council of Ministers. The Seym agreed to extend the state of emergency for another 60 days.

By the middle of next year, a steel fence will be erected on the border with Belarus, topped with barbed wire and enriched with electronic devices. The 180 km long and 5.5 m high dam will be built in Podlasie. Along the border, motion sensors as well as day and night cameras will be installed. The Bug River is a natural dam in the Lublin region.
