Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Polish Prime Minister Blames Russia For Belarus Migrant Crisis” – below is their description.

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki blamed Russia for being behind the migrant crisis on its border with Belarus and warned that the recent tensions were only the beginning of a longer problem.

Europe faces a “synchronized” series of crises around Belarus, from the political to energy and security, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said Sunday as he again blamed Russia for being behind the migrant crisis on its border.

Speaking during his tour of three Baltic states on Sunday, Morawiecki voiced alarm over tensions flaring from Belarus to Ukraine, and warned of Moscow’s “appetite to rebuild the empire” at a press conference with his Lithuanian counterpart Ingrida Simonyte.

His push to coordinate the region’s response to what he described as the first such attempt to destabilize Europe since the end of the Cold War thirty years ago follows warnings from U.S. officials that Russia may be weighing a potential invasion of Ukraine.

The Kremlin denies any such intention. “This hysteria is being pumped up artificially,” the Russian wire Tass cited Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying on Sunday. “Nato needs to stop its provocative activities at our borders.”

“The things that are unfolding before our eyes, these dramatic events, may only be a prelude to something much worse,” Morawiecki said. “We’re more inclined to warn ahead of time than to regret we haven’t done so post factum.”

The visit to Estonia, Lithuania and Estonia is the first leg of Morawiecki’s planned meetings with other European leaders in the coming days that come as the tensions on the Belarus border appear to be easing.

Yet in a YouTube video posted on Sunday, the Polish prime minister said that what may appear from a distance to be an ordinary migration crisis, is far more serious.

“Today the target is Poland, but tomorrow it’ll be Germany, Belgium, France or Spain,” he said.
