The Polish government considers the option of full closure of the state border with Belarus. Mariusz Blaszczak, the Minister of National Defense reported that as quoted by Polskie Radio.

"We consider a number of scenarios; we are aware that we have to deal with the hybrid attack. Yesterday, it was quite a serious situation", the Minister wrote.

The attacks of illegal migrants took place in the nighttime, too, but their intensity was lower than that in Kuznica town the day before. The situation on the border is complicated even more because Lukashenko's government supports the migrants. The Kremlin, in turn, supports Lukashenko.

Blaszczak added that the crisis on the border is quite complex, which is why it can't be solved quickly.

"One needs to be get prepared for the fact that the situation on the Belarusian border will not be solved quickly; we should be getting ready for months - not years, I hope", he wrote.

On November 8, hundreds of migrants were seen at the Polish-Belarusian border. Therefore, the Polish government immediately pulled the soldiers on alert to the borders, and Lukashenko asked for help from Russian aviation to guarantee security at the country's borders.

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.
