Polish Forces use tear gas on migrants trying to across from Belarus
On the border from the Belarus inside migrants started throwing rocks and bricks and branches towards the Polish forces. A scene of chaos which is continuing there and it feels very much like a pre-planned provocation. It’s quite hard to breathe because pepper spray has been employed too. It feels like a provocation. It seems as if a decision has been taken on this side of the border to try and exact a response from over there from Poland from the EU.
Water cannon being used, cones being thrown, more rocks and branches going in in many ways. The picture that Alexander Lukashenko wants to transmit to the world. Belarus has been trying to portray Europe as uncaring and uncompassionate inhuman even and there had been rumors that these kind of scenes could develop there. Certainly, Belarus will use it to portray that image of Europe to the world.
