Lithuania claims that Belarusian law enforcers have been using the new tactics of sending the migrants to the border. Rustam Lyubayev, the head of Lithuanian Border Guard said so as cited by Delfi.

"We noticed that tactics changed as well: representatives of Belarusian law enforcement agencies push people in groups of three, fourt, five people towards Lithuania, which in fact makes it harder to detect, caprute and detention of such groups. However, these groups were detained", Lyubayev said. 

At that, Lithuanian border guards reported that a signal flare was fired on the border at the Belarusian side on Sunday. Three shots were heard in Salcininkai district of Belarus on Sunday noon. Later in the evening, separate shots were heard in Lazdijai district, on the Belarusian side.

According to the Lithuanian border guards, this year, almost 4,200 people crossed the country's border line illegally. Almost 300 illegal migrants were sent off.

As it was reported, on November 8 on the Polish-Belarusian border a large number of migrants was noticed. Because of this, the Polish government sent a large number of military to the borders. Soon the Belarusian security forces tried to push 35 people to the Polish border, and on November 13 they intended to break through the fence on the border with Poland with the help of a service car.

Later, the illegal migrants began to storm the Polish border in the area of Podlaskie Voivodeship. Migrants threw stones at border guards, but failed to cross the Polish border.
