MINSK, 19 January (BelTA) - Another incident happened on the border with Poland: armed servicemen crossed into the territory of Belarus on two occasions, BelTA learned from the State Border Committee of Belarus.
"CCTV cameras recorded the border violations at the Belarusian Kozlovichi checkpoint. On 18 January, a Polish armed soldier crossed 20m into the Belarusian territory and returned back. A couple of hours later, in the same area, an armed serviceman crossed the Belarusian border and returned to Poland again," the State Border Committee said.
Poland has been notified of these incidents. Further bilateral information exchange will be carried out by means of correspondence between the offices of border commissioners.
"By persisting with provocative actions and spreading fake news Poland is artificially escalating tensions pretending to be combating hybrid threats," the State Border Committee noted. “Despite the unfriendly steps of the neighboring state, Belarus' position remains the same. All disputes must be resolved through constructive bilateral contacts and open dialogue."
