Refugees in Belarus border checkpoint camp split into groups, getting transferred into logistics hub

GRODNO, 18 November (BelTA) – Refugees in the camp near the Belarusian border checkpoint Bruzgi have been split into groups and are getting transferred to a nearby transportation and logistics hub, BelTA has learned.

Suffering from cold and the long wait for the European Union's decision to open a humanitarian corridor, most of the refugees from the field camp have decided to move to the warehouse.

One refugee previously told a BelTA reporter that this night had been very cold and windy, it had been raining, everyone had suffered from cold weather a lot and had been trying to warm up at campfires in the morning.
