Illegal migration maybe a part of the Russian Zapad-2021 military exercises

 At least several thousand people have already been brought in by the Belarusian regime as part of its demographic attack on Poland and the Baltic states. The operation codenamed "Śluza" (Lock) is accompanied by activities of a psychological and informative nature, the purpose of which is to destroy the image of the attacked countries and polarize public opinion. The Belarusian dictator is also taking advantage of the Afghan crisis.

"Illegal migration may be an element of the Belarusian-Russian military maneuvers 'Zapad-2021' and all the more we should be united as a state and society," - said the deputy head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Marcin Przydacz on Wednesday. He stressed that this was not the place for "happenings of opposition politicians on the border".

On Monday, the head of the Ministry of National Defense, Mariusz Błaszczak, announced that the construction of the fence on the Polish-Belarusian border will begin this week. On Tuesday, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki confirmed that "the works will begin in the coming days" and will last "several weeks". 

According to Przydacz, "we cannot look at the migration issues and hybrid activities that we have observed recently in isolation from the Zapad exercises and the aggressive policy of Russia and Belarus in a military and military sense". He assured that Poland is "closely" watching the development of the situation and is trying to protect the country and its allies.
