"In Germany, Estonia and Poland, Merkel is criticized for having a telephone conversation with Lukashenko. The acting Chancellor is accused of recognizing him as the head of Belarus, contrary to the EU's position," the statement reads.
The head of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Estonian Parliament, Marko Mikhkelson said that the Chancellor's actions were a serious disappointment. He also stressed that Merkel had made the call bypassing Poland.
"Such contact from Merkel makes a rather strange impression. In addition, she did it bypassing Poland, and Putin would have liked it very much," Mikhelson said.
The Deputy Prime Minister of Poland, Jaroslaw Kaczynski noted that such actions were necessary, but not so much that they were carried out behind the back of the Polish state.
In Germany, Merkel's conversation with Lukashenko was called a terrible signal, as the chancellor recognized Lukashenko as the legitimate president of Belarus.
As it was reported, on November 15, acting German Chancellor Angela Merkel and president of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko discussed by telephone ways to solve the problem of congestion of migrants near the borders of the European Union.
On November 17, Aleksandr Lukashenko wants to be recognized as a legally elected president, and he also expects the EU to lift the sanctions - in exchange for putting the end to the migration crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border.
As it was reported, Eastern Europe is currently experiencing a migration crisis. Illegal migrants who have arrived in Belarus are trying to break through the border into Poland and then into Germany.
For the past few days, migrants have been aggressively trying to attack the border, but Polish border guards have not allowed them to do so.
Today it became known that the Belarusian regime deported illegal immigrants from the border area and placed them in the logistics center.
On November 16, 12 Polish servicemen were injured as a result of the aggression of migrants. Earlier it was reported that a 14-year-old boy died of a cold in an illegal camp. In addition, it was noted that a migrant family was beaten and robbed.
