According to the Prime Minister of Poland, the current situation is the “silent revenge” of the Belarusian leader.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki accused Belarus on Wednesday of “state terrorism” in connection with an unprecedented immigration crisis on the Belarusian-Polish border, AFP reported on Wednesday.
“What we are facing here – we must be clear – is a manifestation of state terrorism,” Morawiecki told reporters in Warsaw at a joint press conference with European Council President Charles Michel.
According to the Prime Minister of Poland, the current situation is a “silent revenge” of Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko for Warsaw’s support of opponents of his regime.
Michel reiterated that he planned a brutal hybrid attack on the European Union by sending migrants to its borders.

The European Council president also announced the possibility of “additional sanctions” on Minsk – which EU member states discussed the possibility on Monday.
“We need to show strong unity in order to have (sufficient) impact and stop what is happening now because it is unacceptable,” Michel added.
For months, Western countries accused the Belarusian regime of sending migrants across the Polish border into the European Union in response to the sanctions.
However, Poland refuses to accept these migrants, and as a result, thousands of desperate people, trapped by armed forces from both countries, are stranded around the border in frigid temperatures.
President Lukashenko of Belarus claims that Western countries themselves are to blame for this situation, as people flee their pre-war homeland as a result.
