Poland’s government has moved to introduce a state of emergency on the country’s border with Belarus – which is also the eastern boundary of the European Union – amid a recent surge in illegal crossings, mostly by Iraqis and Afghans.
It would be the first time since the fall of communism in 1989 that Poland has introduced a state of emergency, said the interior minister, Mariusz Kamiński, at a press conference today.
“We must stop these aggressive hybrid actions, which are carried out according to a script written in Minsk…in order to introduce a destabilising element” said the prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, speaking alongside him.
