The European Union has allocated € 700,000 to help migrants on the border of Poland and Belarus. This was reported by the press center of the European Commission.

"The European Commission has allocated €200,000 in humanitarian funding to deliver much needed relief assistance, including food, hygiene kits, blankets, and first aid kits. The EU has mobilised an additional €500,000 in humanitarian funding and is currently in contact with its humanitarian partner organisations for the implementation of the funds," the message reads.

The European Commission stands ready to provide additional humanitarian funding in response to clearly established humanitarian needs, should the access for humanitarian partner organisations in Belarus further improve.

Meanwhile, migrants who have spent days in a makeshift camp on the Belarusian side of Poland’s eastern border were being taken away by bus by Belarusian officials.

Poland’s Border Guard posted a video showing migrants with bags and backpacks being directed by Belarus forces away from the border.

However, Border Guard spokeswoman, Anna Michalska said some of the migrants were seen taking wooden logs with them, raising questions about whether they might be moved to another spot along the frontier.
