Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki says that the Polish border separates more than countries. In the case, of Belarus, it separates two vastly different ideologies.
“The Polish-Belarusian border separates two worlds – dictatorship from democracy, and a normal state which cares for its citizens from a regime which uses the citizens of other countries as human shields,” said Morawiecki while taking part in a meeting on Monday with representatives of Polish uniform services who are serving on the Polish-Belarusian border.
Morawiecki further spoke about how to efficiently repel attacks which are continuing to take place on the border.
“The border is becoming increasingly stronger. We will soon initiate the construction of a barrier on the border which will be an effective tool to protect against illegal migration,” the Polish prime minister said. Morawiecki added that the most vital equipment had already arrived at the border and that there was much more of it than two weeks ago.
He pointed out that during the cold weather, soldiers and officers no longer have to sleep in tents and have been relocated to hotels, hostels and other living quarters.
Morawiecki also referred to a series of diplomatic endeavors thanks to which some of the migrants have already started to return home.
“There is a chance that the regime will withdraw, but we do not know what lurks in the heads of Lukashenko and his master and sponsor from the Kremlin. We must be prepared for the worst scenarios,” he said.
Morawiecki thanked the soldiers and officers for their hard work in defending the Polish border every day.
“The measure of a state’s sovereignty is the strength of its border and the ability to defend our territory and our border. Our soldiers and officers do this incredibly well. All of Poland is proud of you, soldiers and officers. We thank you very much,” he stated.
