Belarusian security forces are forcing migrants to cut a fence on the border with Poland and move on, Polish Radio reports.

"Belarusian services are gathering young people and preparing them to cut the fence and cross the border," the statement reads.

It is noted that the border crossing was planned to take place today at 9:00 am (Polish time). However, nothing has happened yet.

The migrants themselves say that they would like to cross the border safely, without cutting the barbed wire fence. In addition, they report that they are unable to leave the camp and that their general situation is deteriorating.

According to the Polish government, there are currently 2-4 thousand migrants on the Belarusian-Polish border. On Sunday, November 14, the Polish authorities, based on an analysis of actions on the Belarusian side of the border, assessed the possible aggravation of the situation.

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.

It was also reported that the number of migrants who settled on the Belarusian side near the Polish border has already exceeded a thousand, they are also joined by migrants from Africa.

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. In addition, the migrants used tear gas against the Polish services, which they received from the Belarusian security forces. Besides, Belarusian security officers offer alcohol to migrants, who gathered on the border with Poland, to increase aggressive sentiment among them.
