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.

It soon became known that the Belarusian security forces were trying to push 35 people to the Polish border, the overwhelming majority of whom were women and children.

According to the Polish border service, on the night of November 13, the Belarusian military tried to break through the fence on the border with Poland using a service car.

On November 15 it became known that Belarusian security forces are forcing migrants to cut a fence on the border with Poland and move on. After that, the Belarusian army began to gather a large number of migrants and its soldiers at the border.

In the evening of November 15, a group of illegal immigrants in Belarus again attempted to storm the Polish border near Podlaskie Voivodeship. Migrants threw stones and hit dozens of Polish police officers, border guards and soldiers but did not manage to cross the border.
