Opinion: Belarus offers media unobstructed access to refugees stranded on border

MINSK, 18 November (BelTA) – Belarus does not impose any restrictions on journalists covering the developments on the Belarus-Poland border, political consultant from Ukraine Mikhail Chaplyga said on the air of Belarus 1, BelTA informs.

“The Belarusian side does not place any restrictions on the media. In other words, any journalist can go there. At the same time, the Poles seek to portray the situation to their own advantage. The ruling political regime in Poland will naturally try to show the situation the way that will bring them political benefits. Accordingly, giving anyone access to the border means undermining all efforts to improve their rating, because visitors to the border will see absolutely non-aggressive and unarmed people trying to find a better life,” said Mikhail Chaplyga.

The expert noted that there was time when millions of Poles rushed to Germany, Great Britain and other countries. “They were looking for a better life. How are those Poles different from the migrants who are now trying to get to Germany leaving behind their countries that were destroyed during the struggle for resources and gold?” he asked.
