The Polish authorities do not intend to grant asylum to Chechen migrants since in this region of Russia there is no war. This was stated by the Minister of internal Affairs of Poland Mariusz Blashak, reports Tvn24.
“We will not be subjected to pressure those who wish to lead to a crisis of migration. Our policy is quite different. The Polish border is sealed. In Chechnya there is no war in contrast to the situation a few years ago,” he said.
The Minister explained that, in his opinion, these actions are an attempt to build a new route for the influx of Muslims to Europe. “We want to help the victims. We help those who are in a situation of war, we try to provide financial support or assistance to refugees in the camps,” he explained. The Minister noted that when Chechnya was a war, Poland took the refugees there.
As reported the Belarusian service of Radio Liberty, 30 August at the Belarusian-Polish border, about 200 Russian citizens from Chechnya have set up camp. They demanded from Poland to provide them with shelter.
According to statements of participants of the protest camps, a total of more than two and a half thousand Chechens who settled in Brest, Belarus, trying to enter the European Union, adds Bi-bi-si.
