The Belarusian authorities and the local Red Cross among other NGOs provided food and other supplies to migrants stranded on the Poland-Belarus border near the Bruzgi checkpoint on Wednesday.
The State Border Committee of Belarus estimated on Tuesday that there are about two thousand migrants in front of the fences on the border with Poland. Tensions between the EU and Belarus have been escalating in recent months, with the EU accusing Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko of deliberately sending migrants to the border in response to sanctions imposed by the EU.
Germany and Poland strengthened joint border patrols on the frontier with Belarus on October 20 and put a barbed wire fence in place to prevent the illegal flow. Earlier Lukashenko had stated that he would weaken control over migration at the borders with Western countries.
