MINSK, 20 December (BelTA) - Emil Czeczko's interview with the Belarusian media has confirmed the unjustified cruelty of the Polish authorities, bordering on crime, towards migrants, Chairman of the House of Representatives Vladimir Andreichenko said, BelTA learned from the press service of the House of Representatives.
"Detaining Polish soldier Emil Czeczko in the border zone and his application for political asylum is another milestone indicative of the crisis of Western democracy," said Vladimir Andreichenko. “The interview that this young man gave to the Belarusian media has confirmed that the Polish authorities displayed unjustified cruelty, bordering on crime, towards migrants who believed in a ‘European bright future'. Mentally the young Pole could not cope with the dissonance between political slogans and the reality, and made his choice according to his conscience."
The speaker stated that the truth, which is broadcast by the Belarusian side, "is not to the liking of the advocates of Western democracy. Any deviations from the general line of the European Union are unacceptable."
Vladimir Andreichenko stressed that Belarus has always pursued a peace-loving policy aimed at good-neighborliness and mutually beneficial cooperation. "The continuation of confrontation is the worst possible scenario, and the language of sanctions is unacceptable in the 21st century," the speaker of the House of Representatives added.
