The Russian Foreign Ministry reminded that in recent years migrants have repeatedly broken through to the European Union through Turkey, Greece and Italy
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova believes that the statements of the Polish authorities about Russia's fault in the emerging migration crisis,” ; all borders are crossed. ”
“ It’s amazing, of course, what we hear from Warsaw. This, frankly speaking, in my opinion, goes beyond all possible frames of both decency and common sense. I'm talking about the accusations against our country, and about the assessment of the situation in general, '', & mdash; she said on the air of the program Soloviev Live.
In particular, Zakharova recalled the words of Polish President Andrzej Duda, who called what was happening on the border a hybrid attack of the Belarusian special services against his country, as well as the Deputy Foreign Minister of Poland, Marcin Pshidach, who announced the use of people by the “ authoritarian regime to destabilize the European Union. ''
“ Well, it's impossible like this, just tell a lie and lie on a blue eye. They really lie to themselves '', & mdash; said Zakharova. She recalled that the current migration crisis is not the first for a long time: in previous years, refugees have repeatedly broken through to the EU through Turkey, Greece, Italy.
The day before, the Polish leaders made a series of statements, blaming Minsk for the incident. For example, President Duda accused the Belarusian authorities of deliberately directing migrant flows to those sections of the border in the Grodno region where there are no border crossings.
In turn, the head of the Polish government, Mateusz Morawiecki, during his speech in the parliament said that Russian President Vladimir Putin is behind Lukashenka's actions. “ Moscow intends to restore the Russian Empire, and Poland must resist such a scenario, '' & mdash; he said.
Over the past two days, hundreds of migrants have been trying to cross the Belarusian-Polish border. Over the past day, despite the active opposition of the Polish military, several groups managed to break through the barriers. Some of them managed to be detained, others are already looking for in Poland.
