THE International Organisation for Migration warned today of “dire conditions” facing refugees stuck at the Poland-Belarus border.
The UN agency said refugees trapped on the EU’s eastern border faced “extremely harsh conditions, with limited access to drinking water and food, medical assistance, sanitation facilities and shelter.”
Poland declared a state of emergency last week and deployed troops to erect razor-wire fences to keep out the refugees, who hail from Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq.
With Lithuania and Latvia, it accuses Belarus of pushing EU-bound migrants through the border, saying Minsk is waging “hybrid warfare” in revenge for EU sanctions.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki denied today the existence of a humanitarian crisis, saying the refugees were funded and fed by the Belarusian state.
He accused opposition politicians who have called for provision to be made for the refugees of acting “according to plans written in Minsk and Moscow.”
