MINSK, 29 November (BelTA) - The EU's logic as to the causes and ways to resolve the refugee crisis is twisted, member of the Council of the Republic Aleksandr Bachylo told BelTA.
"In terms of the growing flow of illegal migrants from the Middle East and Asian regions to the EU via Belarus, the EU displays a twisted logic with regard to the causes and ways to settle this problem," the senator said.
To prove his point the senator suggested answering some simple questions. "What was the root cause of the flows of illegal migrants from these regions to the EU countries via various states to the west, south and south-east of the European Union in previous years? How much and whom the European Union paid to deal with such problem in the recent past? Who guarded the peace of the EU border with Belarus in previous years and who must allocate funding to deal with the flow of illegal migrants that, as in the past, hail from the same regions and that are, as in the past, headed to the EU countries, only this time via Belarus?" Aleksandr Bachylo said.
According to the senator, answering these questions, one can come to the obvious conclusions as to whose logic is right and who "owes" whom in matters of solving the problem of illegal migrants.
