The Polish president declared a state of emergency on the border with Belarus

Poland has extended barbed wire along the border with Belarus due to the crisis caused by illegal immigration and has also started building a 2.5-meter high fence.

On Thursday, Polish President Andrzej Duda declared a state of emergency in the regions bordering Belarus due to the situation linked to the influx of illegal immigrants. The president’s spokesperson made the announcement after Duda signed the decree declaring a state of emergency, PAP reported.

The state of emergency will last for 30 days and will concern Lublin and Podlaski counties. However, the president’s decision has not yet been confirmed by Parliament.

The immediate reason for declaring the state of emergency was the crisis caused by the plight of 30 migrants from the Middle East stranded at the Polish-Belarus border because Poland refused to accept them. The migrants were stranded there for three weeks.

The Polish government asked the president to declare a state of emergency earlier this week. Then Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki declared that the situation on the border with Belarus is crisis and tense.

Poland, like Lithuania, has faced an influx of immigrants from Belarus in recent weeks. Several leaders accuse Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko of organizing illegal immigration, which they say is trying to foment instability in the European Union. At the end of May, the Belarusian leader announced that his country would not prevent migrants from moving further into the European Union in response to tougher Western sanctions.
