Alexander Lukashenko will use various instruments to force the West to change the current situation. Of course, he does it with the consent and knowledge of Vladimir Putin – said Maciej Wąsik, Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs and Administration, in an interview with Katarzyna Gójska on First Polish Radio. The politician was asked about Lukashenko’s further actions on the Polish-Belarusian border.
The Deputy Head of the Interior Ministry spoke about the situation on the Polish-Belarusian border in ‘Signals of the Day’. He estimated that it could be said that the pressure of migrants on the Polish border is several times lower than a few weeks ago.
“However, it seems that Lukashenko is regrouping, that he will continue to use these methods, and that he will continue to conduct an aggressive policy towards Poland. There is no doubt that he will try to build an image of Poland as a country that is unfriendly to people of a different skin color, an image of Poland as a country that violates human rights, and, of course, he has his allies in this activity, but this pressure on the border is less at the moment,” reported Maciej Wąsik.
He was also questioned about attacks on Polish officers. The editor noted that there are reports in the public space that attacks at the border are fewer in number, but much more violent.
“Alexander Lukashenko has nothing to lose, he is under sanctions, he is considered a dictator. His presidency is widely unrecognized in Europe. Therefore, he will use various instruments to force the West to change the current situation. Of course, he’s doing it with the approval and knowledge of Vladimir Putin,” the politician said.
