How is it possible that Belarus is sending Syrian and Iraqi migrants to Poland’s borders? In case anyone was wondering, Belarus is far away from the Middle East. Under no circumstances is it a natural transit country.

And yes: this is all due to a political campaign orchestrated by the Belarusian dictator, Alexander Lukashenko, in retaliation to the EU sanctions. Belarus has always been a dictatorship but, in recent months, it has increased its levels of repression. Europe has responded with economic pressure. And Belarus has been trying all this year to do as much damage to Europe as possible in response.

But… What do Syrian and Iraqi refugees have to do with all this? How has Lukashenko been able to use them for his plans? And what are the consequences of all this? In this video we tell you.
