KYIV — Poland accused Belarus of trying to spark a major confrontation on Monday as video clips showed hundreds of migrants walking towards the Polish border and some trying to breach the fence using spades and other implements.

Warsaw said it had deployed additional soldiers, border guards and police, while neighboring Lithuania said it might introduce a state of emergency on its border with Belarus.

The European Union, to which Poland and Lithuania both belong, accuses Minsk of encouraging migrants from the Middle East and Africa to cross into the EU via Belarus, as a form of hybrid warfare in revenge for Western sanctions on President Alexander Lukashenko’s government over human rights abuses.

Is Eastern Europe On The Edge of War?

Russia has been massing thousands of troops near the border of Ukraine yet flatly states it’s not invading. Belarus has “weaponized” illegal immigrants on the borders of Poland, Lithuania, and Latvia as they attempt to forcibly enter the countries. NATO is worried. Even Blinken mentioned the situation is “concerning” and warned Russia from making a grave mistake. Eastern Europe is in trouble. edge of war

Eastern Europe on the edge

Satellite images reveal that Russia has amassed around 90,000 troops near Ukraine. After their so-called military “exercise” earlier this year, analysts say they never really went home to Russia as was claimed. And they left all the equipment near the Ukraine border at Yelnya. Russia still claims they are not planning to invade. Ukraine is not so sure. And Russia and Belarus are planning a joint military exercise. The icing on a dangerous cake.
