Poland fears that the Belarusian special services will provide illegal migrants with weapons, said spokesman for the Polish government Piotr Müller in an interview on the Wirtualna Polska portal.

“One of the options that we have in the analysis is that the employees of the Belarusian services, for example, provide one, two, three people who are in these groups with weapons, and they will simply come to a situation that will be associated with their use. , and then we will have a crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border, “Mueller said.

“Then, of course, the Belarusian authorities will say that they have absolutely nothing to do with this,” he said.

Recently, numerous groups of migrants have regularly attempted to break through the border from Belarus to Poland.
