    The President of the Republic of Poland, Andrzej Duda, commented on the issue of war in Ukraine and the migration crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border in the latest interview by Gazeta Polska.

    The events on the Polish-Belarusian border have raised many questions and suspicions of a possible attack on Ukraine. According to the president of Poland, the Belarusian services were actively involved in the incident and they used it as a test to see if Poland was prepared to protect its borders. He also believes that the incident was part of an operation by the Lukashenko regime, backed by Russia.

    “We unequivocally believe that it was (prelude to attack – ed.). After all, we were dealing with the involvement, practically open, of the Belarusian services. This served as a test of whether we would be motivated to defend the border, whether this defence would be effective,” Andrzej Duda told Gazeta Polska

    He also addressed the potential situation of hundreds of thousands of immigrants from Islamic countries entering Poland and causing trouble to the citizens. He stated that in such a case, Poles’ reaction to the influx of Ukrainian refugees, who are in need of shelter, might be less enthusiastic. He further commented that this could have been an attempt to create a political crisis and destabilise the state.

    “We unequivocally believe that it was. After all, we were dealing with the involvement, practically open, of the Belarusian services. This served as a test of whether we would be motivated to defend the border, whether this defence would be effective,” he added.

    The president of Poland believes that this was an operation by the Lukashenko regime with the support of Russia. He further expressed that he accepts reality as it is and is doing his best to deal with it. He also assured that all the people responsible for Poland’s security agreed on the nature of the operation and who was behind it.
