The United States is concerned about the crisis at the Polish-Belarus border: they have identified the obvious culprit

The US Department of Defense is concerned that the current immigration crisis at the Polish-Belarus border could destabilize the situation in the region.

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby announced this at a news briefing in Washington on Tuesday. He added that the United States had not received any requests for military assistance from Warsaw regarding the developments of the situation.

According to Kirby, the Pentagon agrees with the US State Department The Belarusian authorities blame the responsibility for what is happening at the Polish-Belarus border. Kirby added that his department, like American diplomacy, was calling for an immediate end to these unacceptable actions.

Kirby admitted at a press conference on Tuesday, according to TASS The situation in the region is worrying. He added that the United States is also aware of the destabilizing effects of these migration flows on the region as a whole.

“We need to focus on the support of our allies and partners and not want to escalate this or any other situation on the European continent to the point where miscalculation and conflict could occur.” Kirby stated.

The migration crisis intensified on Belarus’ borders with Latvia, Lithuania and Poland on Monday (November 8th). Thousands of people from the Belarusian side have arrived at the Polish border and refuse to leave the border area. Some tried to reach Poland by rolling or cutting a barbed wire fence.

EU member states accuse Minsk of deliberately escalating the crisis and calling for sanctions. On the other hand, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko claims that the Western countries themselves are to blame for this situation, because people are fleeing their pre-war homeland for their actions.
