MINSK, 30 November (BelTA) – The situation on the Belarusian-Polish border is an operation of Western special services, Igor Khlobukin, a member of the Permanent Commission for Environment, Natural Resources and Chernobyl Catastrophe, told reporters, BelTA has learned.
“The situation is really paradoxical. It has a certain purpose. A special operation developed by special services of Western states is underway. This issue can be easily resolved by opening a humanitarian corridor,” Igor Khlobukin said.
However, according to him, some are trying to use this situation to their own advantage. “Someone, like Poland, wants to show its strength and receive certain financial resources from the European Union and its overseas partners. Someone earns on smuggling of people across the border. After all, many of these migrants sold all their property to move to the West. Thus, this issue goes beyond geopolitics and has also to do with crime, as well as the attitude to our country, the MP said.
Igor Khlobukin stressed that Belarus did not leave these people in dire straits. “We have shown what kind of people we are and how we treat people and international commitments. We help everyone in trouble not just in word, but in deed, regardless of their citizenship, ethnicity, gender, race, religion. This is the position our welfare state sticks to. This is our brand, we will keep it this way. Now more and more people in the world see the humanity and significance of our efforts to resolve this issue,” he stated.
