Lukashenko describes migration situation as a humanitarian disaster

Minsk, Sep 27 (Prensa Latina) Earlier on Monday, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko held a meeting with the heads of the country's law enforcement agencies where he described the situation with migrants on the western border as a humanitarian disaster.

Upon hearing a report on border issues, Lukashenko stressed that the European Union’s countries bordering Belarus ‘have introduced a state of emergency and no one is allowed there. So that no one can know how people die there.’

Lukashenko stressed the significance of holding consultations to face such a challenge jointly as soon as possible, bearing in mind the proximity of winter and these people’s conditions, Belta news agency reported.

‘It is not fair that people suffer. Well, yes, they dressed them, fed them, supplied them with firewood, handed over some tents. But in winter they will freeze. These are people who came thousands of kilometers from the south,’ Lukashenko regretted.

The Belarusian head of State accused neighboring EU countries of manipulating information about the events, blaming Minsk for organizing the migration crisis with the purpose of misleading the international community.

He claimed that these countries are the rootcause cause of the political destabilization and economic deterioration of EU states from which the illegal immigrants come, whom they supposedly ‘called’ to embark on a voyage to the EU.

Poland, Latvia and Lithuania condemned an increased toll of undocumented migrants trying to enter from Belarus, after Lukashenko said his country ‘has neither money nor strength’ to deal with the problem, in particular, due to the sanctions imposed by the United States.
