Lithuania will Ask the UN to Open a "Humanitarian Corridor" in Belarus
“The main issue that we want to raise is the opening of a humanitarian corridor from the Belarusian border through Grodno so that these people can return home,” the minister’s words are quoted on the portal.
According to him, the Grodno airport can be used to transport people so that they "can return home, and not wait for rescue in the Belarusian forests."
The minister noted that the UN is the only international organization that can "put pressure on Belarus from within."
Earlier, a source in the UN Security Council told RIA Novosti that Estonia, France and Ireland requested a discussion in the Security Council on Thursday of the situation on the Belarusian-Polish border.
On the Polish-Belarusian border, panic is growing among migrants due to the onset of frost. This night was cold again. We already know about the first victims. Belarusian border guards provided medical assistance to a 14-year-old teenager from Kurdistan. He almost died due to hypothermia.
Reports of the death of a 14-year-old refugee turned out to be stuffed in the Polish media. This information was officially denied by the Belarusian State Border Committee. But the teenager really suffered: he has frostbite. He was assisted by Belarusian border guards and doctors. The boy is already with his family, but is still here, under the Polish barbed wire.
Meanwhile, the Old World was very skeptical about Warsaw's claims that Russia was involved in the migration crisis on the border between Poland and Belarus. So, for example, the French Foreign Ministry said that there is simply no evidence in favor of such accusations.
