Refugees are trying to reach Germany via various routes, including through Belarus and Poland – writes the portal rbb24 on Saturday, citing data from the German-Polish border control. Most of these people are arrested by German police at the hands of smugglers.
About four weeks ago, more and more refugees arrived at the reception center in the Eisenhuitenstadt border area on the Oder River, who arrived in Germany via Belarus and Poland
– Describe the rbb24 gateway.
On Friday evening, there were 23 people, mostly from Iraq.
A total of about 100 people have arrived in the past four weeks. Most of them are people who have been intercepted by the police, and taken by smugglers, says Martin Burmeister, a spokesman for the State Department of the Interior in Brandenburg.
Inspections are currently focused on searching for people who have traveled to Belarus. We conduct more and more random personal searches in the 30-kilometer border corridor
– A spokeswoman for the Federal Police confirms in rbb24.
We are seeing developments in Germany, but the numbers are low so far. It is known that a large number of people previously resided in Turkey, from there they left for Belarus, and then were brought to Brandenburg
– Adds Burmester.
Actions taken by the Belarusian authorities
However, he is unable to estimate to what extent the Belarusian authorities are involved in these migratory movements.
It is very important for Brandenburg that people apply for asylum. This standard procedure will be followed once these people arrive at the reception center
– He explains.
In May, the President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, announced, in response to EU sanctions, that he would not stop migrants from continuing to travel to the EU.
