Migrants at Poland-Belarus Border Moved to 'Transport and Logistics Center'

Belarusian authorities moved around 1,000 people to a logistics center near the Kunizca-Bruzgi border, they said, publishing these photographs on November 17.

The migrants moved to the facility were those “most affected by the actions of Polish security forces, as well as women and children,” the State Border Committee of Belarus said. They spent the night at the heated facility and, along with people at the border camp, were provided with hot food, the committee said.

The committee said, “On the morning of November 17, a decision was made to place some foreigners elsewhere.” On the same day, Polish authorities said that migrants camping at the border with Belarus were seen packing up their belongings and leaving for an “unknown location”.

The developments followed clashes at the Kuznica-Bruzgi border crossing.

Polish police said seven officers were injured as migrants threw stones from the Belarusian side and Polish forces responded with water cannons and tear gas.

The State Border Committee had said an investigation was launched into the clashes, adding, “This is regarded as nothing other than violent actions against persons who are on the territory of another country.” Credit: State Border Committee of Belarus via Storyful
