Belarus Behind New Migration Crisis

Belarus has trained Afghan and Iraqi war veterans to carry out armed attacks on the Polish border, a former regime insider has warned, EUobserver reports.

The migration crisis is being used by Lukashenko to insert into EU territory people who have military experience “and who additionally undertook training on Belarusian territory to realise terrorist acts,” Pavel Latushka, Belarus’ former ambassador to France and Poland and former culture minister, told the news site.

In the last days, groups of migrants tried to enter Poland from Belarus, clashing with border forces.

Throughout 2020, Lithuania, Latvia and Poland have reported major increases in migrants reaching their territory from Belarus and have accused Lukashenko of using them to put pressure on the European Union to lift sanctions against his country.
