What goes on in Poland on the 22nd of November.
Poland and the Baltic states respond to the border crisis and will review Nord Stream 2
The Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland, Mateusz Morawiecki, visited Riga to talk with his Latvian counterpart Krisjanis Karins about the border crisis and the activities of the Russian Gazprom. “The decisive resistance of Poland and the Baltic states resulted in the slowing down of certain actions by the Belarusian regime,” he said. “Thank you to Latvia for joining the Nord Stream 2 verification procedure in terms of security,” he added.
“We were very active in contact with the countries of the Middle East, as well as with our Western partners. This led to, among others, changing the attitude of many airlines that have served as a tool for smuggling people. We want to continue these joint activities on NATO’s eastern flank. This flank is able to prevent these dangers,” Morawiecki said in Riga.
“The first thing is that humans are used as human shields. In the last 40 hours Lukashenka transported people directly from the Polish border to logistic centers a few kilometers from the border. This shows that these people are an instrument of power from Minsk,” he said. “Secondly, there is an increasing presence of Russian troops around Ukraine, in Belarus, along the Russian-Belarusian border, and also in the Kaliningrad Oblast. This presence is an instrument that can be used for a direct attack,” he explained.
Germany sides with Poland in the face of the crisis on the border with Belarus
The head of the Ministry of Interior and Administration Mariusz Kamiński talked with the head of the German Ministry of Internal Affairs, Horst Seehofer, about the situation on the Polish-Belarusian border. “We take all actions carefully and firmly in cooperation with our partners and allies and step by step we will lead to a de-escalation of the situation on the eastern border, on the external border of the European Union and we will achieve success in this regard,” Kamiński said. “We are fully on the side of Poland,” Seehofer declared.
On Thursday, the Prime Minister’s Chancellery hosted a meeting between the Minister of Internal Affairs and Administration, Mariusz Kamiński, and the head of the German Interior Ministry, Horst Seehofer. The main topic of the conversation was the situation on the Polish-Belarusian border.
Kamiński said at the press conference after the meeting that it was “a very good, very important conversation about cooperation on a joint assessment of what is happening on the eastern border of Poland, on the eastern border of the European Union.” He added that this is our joint fight for “this border to be stable, safe and for this border to serve the interests of the European Union and protect our country’s sovereignty.”
Horst Seehofer said that “we are fully on the side of Poland.” “What Poland is doing at the moment of this migration crisis is right. It is an irregular migration that is organized perfidiously by Belarus and with some probability it can be said that it is also supported by Russia,” he added.
