As it was reported on November 1, four people were detained in Poland for transporting illegal migrants from the Polish-Belarusian border. Among the drivers was a citizen of Ukraine.

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.
