The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Belarus finally offers shelter to stranded migrants after violent clashes on border with Poland” – below is their description.
Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko has lost its border battle with Poland, Warsaw has said, and now faces a humanitarian crisis with some 20,000 migrants stranded inside its territory.
After an eight-day stand-off on the border, Belarus finally offered respite to migrants that had been camped out in freezing conditions in the hope of breaking through border defences to travel to the EU.
And amid reports that migrants are being bussed away from the area surrounding the Kuznica border crossing, a deputy interior minister in Poland has boasted that “Lukashenko has lost the border battle”.
It came as a stretch of Russia’s major oil pipeline to Europe in Belarus was shut down for maintenance, reinforcing allegations that Minsk is waging a “hybrid war” against the EU.The Telegraph YouTube Channel
