The number of migrants along the border of Belarus, Poland, Lithuania and Latvia has significantly decreased. According to the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, as of November 22, about 150 people remain in the border zone. His words are reported by BELTA.
“As of today, I have clarified. True, there are already much less left. Somewhere about one and a half hundred people on the border – along the entire border of the three states, ”Lukashenka said.
At the same time, the Belarusian president stressed that attempts of migrants to get into the European Union do not stop until now. If such violators are caught by the police in Poland, or even by control on the Polish-German border, they are still sent back to the border strip with Belarus. However, even in such conditions, there is a sharp decline in the number of migrants at the border.
