On Monday morning, the media published information about a large group of migrants planning to cross the Belarusian border with Poland. Migrants are located in the vicinity of Kuźnica. The Ministry of National Defense informed in the afternoon that the Ministry of Interior and Administration and soldiers had managed to stop the first mass attempt to cross the border. Currently, migrants have set up a camp in the Kuźnica region. They are guarded by the Belarusian services.
As Onet found out, additional police forces were brought to the borders already in the previous night. In the morning there were over a thousand riot officers from all over the country. The protection of the border was attended by, inter alia, policemen from Poznań, Bydgoszcz, Łódź and Białystok. Now additional forces are being drawn there. Ultimately, the border is to be guarded by about two thousand policemen.
– The police, unlike other uniformed services, have experience in dispersing crowds and repelling attacks at the time of collective disturbance of order, which is why our formation now rests the main burden of repelling this attack. However, there must be a rotation there, because no human is able to withstand standing in such conditions for 10 hours. – explains our informant.
