A YEAR after migrants started crossing into the European Union from Belarus to Poland, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and top security officials visited the border area today to mark the completion of a new steel wall.
The Polish authorities are also set to lift the “state of emergency” along the border today that has blocked journalists, rights workers and others from witnessing the human rights crisis.
At the very least, 20 people have died in the area’s freezing forests and bogs.
While the Polish government has characterised the wall as part of the fight against Russia, human rights defenders have called out the hypocrisy of white Christian refugees from Ukraine being welcomed but others being rejected and mistreated.
A Human Rights Watch report this month said Poland “unlawfully, and sometimes violently, summarily pushes migrants and asylum-seekers back to Belarus, where they face serious abuses, including beatings and rape by border guards and other security forces.”
