Border Guards faced with violence on the Polish-Belarus border

Officers from the Podlaskie Branch of the Polish Border Guard discovered 47 foreigners who tried to illegally enter our country.

Incidents of illegal migration were recorded at Border Guard posts in Narewka, Białowieża and Dubicze Cerkiewne. 17 people approached the dam, but upon seeing the Polish services, the foreigners retreated to Belarus. Citizens of Syria, Somalia and Yemen, among others, tried to get to Poland against the regulations.

For aiding and abetting, in the Hajnówka commune, the Border Guard patrol detained a Ukrainian citizen who was transporting 5 Syrian citizens in a Nissan. Foreigners illegally crossed the Polish-Belarusian border.

In the section protected by the Border Guard Post in Białowieża, a group of 30 migrants, moving along the dam on the Belarusian side, threw stones and branches at Polish patrols. No one was injured. In turn, people on the side of the Republic of Belarus threw burning branches at an official vehicle patrolling the border in the section of the Border Guard Post in Dubicze Cerkiewne.

Since the beginning of 2023, officers from the Podlasie Border Guard Branch have already detained 475 people involved in organizing illegal crossing of the Polish-Belarusian border.
