    – This is a violation of the international norms – emphasizes the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs referring to the repression of the Polish minority in Belarus. Deputy Foreign Minister Piotr Wawrzyk tweeted with the hashtag #WolniPolacyNaBialorusi: ‘We will not allow the regime to persecute Poles with impunity’.

    In the entry ‘#WolniPolacyNaBialorusi’ (Free Poles in Belarus) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it was pointed out that for several days the authorities in Minsk have exacerbated the absolute repression against the Polish minority in Belarus.

     

    ‘Andżelika Borys and Andrzej Poczobut were arrested for their actions in support of Poland. Further activists are persecuted,’ pointed out the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

     

    This is a violation of international norms – declared the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

     

    Deputy Foreign Minister Piotr Wawrzyk also tweeted with the hashtag #WolniPolacyNaBialorusi: ‘We will not allow the regime to persecute Poles with impunity’ with a graphic that presents Boris and Poczobut, who have been trapped.

     

    Andżelika Boris was arrested on Tuesday (23 Mar 2021) and sentenced on Wednesday (24 Mar 2021) to 15 days in custody for organising an ‘illegal mass event’, for which the authorities recognized the traditional annual Fair Grodno Kaziuki organized on March 7. On Thursday morning in Grodno, a member of the board of the Union of Poles in Belarus Andrzej Poczobut and two directors of Polish schools in Belarus were detained.

     

    President Andrzej Duda assured on Thursday (25 Mar 2021) that they would not leave their compatriots in Belarus alone that they would intervene in their cause to the OSCE, the UN Security Council, within the European Council and NATO. He described the current situation in Belarus as ‘unprecedented’. Last year’s presidential election was rigged, he added.
