The Polish Interior Minister had expressly thanked for this, but declined support. There would be enough police officers and soldiers at the border. Thousands of border crossings could have been prevented. In an interview with Nehammer, Kaminski spoke out in favor of further sanctions against the Belarusian regime and calls for financial help from the EU for the construction of a robust border fence at the external border. Here he asked for the “strong voice” of the Austrian counterpart within the Union.
“The EU Commission repeats the same mistakes that were made during the migration crisis in Lithuania. Again, Brussels refused any financial support for a border fence and only wanted to help with the reception of irregular migrants. A completely wrong signal that is being sent to human smugglers who profit from illegal migration, ”Nehmammer clarified after answering the phone.
The European Union must not allow himself to be blackmailed by the Belarusian ruler, Alexander Lukschenko. “We have to give a clear answer. I support the Polish demand for further sanctions against the regime and against airlines that are serving Lukashenko here by flying irregular migrants to Belarus and thus to the border with Poland ”, said the Minister of the Interior.
