MINSK, 6 October (BelTA) – The Polish side has attempted to simultaneously expel several groups of refugees to Belarus, the State Border Committee of Belarus told BelTA.

According to the source, a military transport delivered the refugees to the Belarusian-Polish border. Once they saw a Belarusian border patrol, the Polish law enforcement personnel recognized they had no way out of the situation and abandoned their illegal actions. They took the refugees back but not all of them. It is unclear why some refugees were left at the border.

Organized deliveries of groups of foreigners by military vehicles from Poland to the Belarusian border have been going on since early August. Such illegal actions of the Polish side have been repeatedly recorded on video.

“Efforts to expel refugees, who are detained in Poland, to Belarus have already resulted in an impromptu camp at the Belarusian-Polish border. A group of 32 Afghanistan citizens, including women and children, has been living in inhumane conditions on the Polish side of the border for nearly two months. However, Poland ignores all appeals of international human rights organizations and a ruling of the European Court of Human Rights,” the State Border Committee of Belarus said.
