British and Estonian soldiers arrived in Poland. They will support Polish troops on the border with Belarus. This was reported by Polish Radio with reference to the Minister of National Defense of Poland Mariusz Blaszczak.
Great Britain sent a company of engineering troops numbering 120 soldiers, and Estonia - one unit, consisting of several dozen soldiers. First, a coordination meeting is planned, after which the parties will begin to fulfill the assigned tasks.
"These tasks include helping the soldiers of the Polish army in maintaining a temporary fence destroyed by the Belarusian services, as well as in building and maintaining access roads to this fence," explained Mariusz Blaszak.
He added that negotiations on additional support for the Polish army by the troops of the Czech Republic and Hungary are currently underway.
Mariusz Blaszczak thanked for the support provided by NATO allies. The head of the department considers this as proof that NATO members unequivocally assess the situation on the Polish-Belarusian border.
"Not from the point of view of the migration crisis, because de facto this is not a migration crisis. This is a hybrid attack that was carried out on Poland, and therefore on the European Union and the North Atlantic Alliance. We are in solidarity with each other," said the head of the Ministry national defense of Poland.
On November 8, a large number of migrants were seen at the Polish-Belarusian border. After that, the Belarusian regime tried many times to help illegal immigrants to get to Poland. Every day, migrants attack the border, but they fail to break through.
