MINSK, 24 November (BelTA) - The EU and Poland demonstrate cruelty, callousness and double standards in relation to the refugees, Director General of the international news agency Rossiya Segodnya Dmitry Kiselyov said as he commented on the situation on the Belarusian-Polish border in an interview with the Belarus 1 TV Channel, BelTA has learned.
“The European Union and Poland have shown cruelty, hard-heartedness, callousness, duplicity and double standards. They, through Merkel's words, have invited refugees, saying that they could cope with this, that they were strong. Now we can see that they have taken up a circular defense, built a massive wall of barbed wire in Europe, in the Schengen area, fencing off from each other,” said Dmitry Kiselyov.
According to him, Belarus has shown the highest humanitarian standards in this situation. “Belarus has sheltered people, fed and warmed them. Poland doused them with poisonous mixtures in the freezing cold. We all saw it, the whole world saw it. Belarus did not bomb Iraq and Syria. Belarus did not arrange a crisis with millions of refugees. Its open legal position was, unfortunately, used against it,” said Dmitry Kiselyov.
