Pregnant women, kids among refugees stopped at Belarusian-Polish border

GRODNO, 8 November (BelTA) – Germany, not Poland remains the final destination of the migrants, who happen to be at the Belarusian-Polish border now. Many of them do not have food and water, they told a BelTA reporter.

A large group of migrants was noticed not far from the border crossing Bruzgi this morning. They were moving towards the Belarusian-Polish border.

One of the young people said that there are about 1,500 people in this group. “All of us are virtually Kurds,” he stressed. Germany is the final destination for many of them.

“There are kids, pregnant women with us. Some are into the eighth, ninth month of their pregnancy. There is no water, food, warm clothes. But we are not allowed to cross the Polish border,” he said. Some made several attempts but Polish military personnel turned them back.

The size of the families varies from several people to dozens of people. For instance, the man said, one family contains 50 people, including babies and the elderly.

“Show us in Germany and France. Tell our story in Europe,” the migrants asked.

The State Border Committee of Belarus stated previously that a large group of refugees carrying their belongings was moving along a motorway towards the Polish border. “The Polish border guard has repeatedly stated that it pushes migrants in their thousands towards the border with Belarus. The refugees attempted this step of desperation due to the indifference and inhumane attitude of the Polish authorities,” representatives of the Belarusian border service said. The Belarusian side took the necessary measures to ensure the uninterrupted operation of international transportation channels and the safety of the people moving along the motorway.
