Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko (67) is allowing more and more migrants to fly in to his country. According to local reporters, 55 flights a week from the Middle East will soon be landing in the Belarusian capital Minsk.
At this rate, it means that there will be about twice as many aircraft landing as before – carrying illegal passengers.
The journalist Tadeusz Giczan tweeted that the Minsk district of Nemiga was already turning into a “Little Baghdad”. From here the migrants make their way to Germany, via Poland.
In another tweet, Giczan reported on so-called “group visas”, which are now being issued by the Minsk authorities, because the rush for individual visas had created too many administrative work.
In October alone, almost 4900 people from crisis areas came to Germany illegally on the route via Belarus and Poland – more than twice as many as in September.
The numbers have stagnated for a few days, but according to local reporters, 55 flights PER WEEK from the Middle East will soon land in the Belarusian capital Minsk. That would be about twice as many aircraft as before.
On the route from Minsk to Germany, illegals can expect an even tougher response from the Polish government on the EU’s external border with Belarus. Since Lukashenko announced in the spring that he would no longer be able to stop migrants heading for the EU, Poland has been striving to strengthen border security.
A stricter immigration law has been in effect since Tuesday. Accordingly, the border guard commander can expel the foreigner concerned from the country immediately after logging an unauthorized border crossing.
German police officers are increasingly looking for people from Iraq, Syria and other crisis areas who are entering Germany illegally on the new escape route via Poland and Belarus and want to apply for asylum in Germany.
Incumbent Interior Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU) sounded the alarm in an interview on BILD Live: “For the first time this year, more than 1000 people came to Germany in one day on all migration routes – not just via Belarus.” But Warsaw has accused Belarus of waging a “hybrid war” in retaliation for EU sanctions by allowing illegals to cross into the EU. Poland said it recorded at least 15 000 attempted crossings in October.
Crystal van Leeuwen, an employee of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), complained that NGOs had no access to a secure militarised zone on the Polish side and spoke of a “crisis unfolding in the EU”. Foreign journalists, aid workers and observers are barred under a state of emergency declared by Warsaw from entering a 3km-deep militarized border zone. At least eight illegals have died in the densely wooded area due to subzero temperatures.
Some 10 000 Polish soldiers have been deployed together with border guards to prevent attempted crossings, after several incidents in which mobs have tried to tear down a razor-wire border fence.
