Space cleared on second floor of Belarusian logistics hub Bruzgi for incoming refugees

MINSK, 18 November (BelTA) – An area of about 350m2 has been cleared on the second floor of the transportation and logistics hub Bruzgi in order to accommodate incoming refugees. President's Aide – Inspector for Grodno Oblast Yuri Karayev made the statement on the air of the TV channel Belarus One, BelTA has learned.

The official said: “We've cleared space on the second floor for those, who have agreed to move here from the camp at the border. About 350m2. And there is another reserve site on the first floor for the same purpose. About 100 people will be able to stay downstairs and about 200 people will be able to move here.”

In his words, railing has been installed for the safety of people on the second floor. Mainly men will be able to stay there. “We are ready and will move them here soon. We will try to leave women and children downstairs and men here. The problem is that families don't want to split, they want to stay together, but we will try to convince them,” the official added.
