    A group of people is camping near the Polish-Belarusian border. Lieutenant Michalska: These people are on the Belarusian side

    “There is no such thing as ‘no man’s land. There is a borderline – there is the Polish side and the Belarusian side. There is a border road lane, but it is either on the Polish or Belarusian side. The group of people, who have been camping for several days near the border, is on the Belarusian side,” explained Lt. Anna Michalska in the noon conversation at RMF FM.

    As the Border Guard spokeswoman added, border guards accept applications for international protection at border crossings, as well as throughout Poland, and from all those who wanted to submit such applications, they were accepted. If the group which we have been observing for a few days in Usnarz Górny was at the border crossing – such conclusions would be accepted by the officers,” the spokesman argues.

    I would like to remind you that there are no groups of nomadic migrants on the Polish side. All persons who illegally crossed the border were taken care of, examined – also under the Covid-19 test and all persons who wanted to apply for international protection submitted their applications – said Lieutenant Anna Michalska, explaining the situation on the Polish-Belarusian border.  

    Friday is another day when a group of people is camping on the Belarusian side near the Polish border near the village of Usnarz Górny. They had already set up several tents. They cannot cross the Polish border and the Belarusian guards do not allow them to go back.
