Poland Beefs Up Border Security, Says Russia and Belarus Pushing New Migrant Wave

Poland Beefs Up Border Security, Says Russia and Belarus Pushing New Migrant Wave

Poland’s Deputy Interior Minister: “We’re talking about an operation organized by the Russian and Belarusian secret services that is getting more and more intense.” 

Russia is using its ally Belarus to flood Eastern Europe with illegal immigrants, Poland fears. Russian forces, particularly the newly deployed Wagner mercenaries, may organize a large-scale migrant influx to ‘destabilize’ Poland, the Polish prime minister and senior officials say.

“We’re talking about an operation organized by the Russian and Belarusian secret services that is getting more and more intense,” Deputy Interior Minister Maciej Wasik told the French news agency AFP on Monday. The Belarusian state is acting as a “criminal group that is masterminding illegal migration. Of course, they are making huge profits from it.” he added.

Belarus, which shares a border with EU members Poland, Latvia, and Lithuania, is ruled by dictator Alexander Lukashenko and is firmly in Moscow’s sphere of influence. Russia has deployed nuclear weapons on Belarusian soil, and the Wagner mercenaries recently started training its special forces.

The statement comes nearly a week after Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki warned that Wagner fighters posing as Belarusian border guards might help large numbers of migrants to crossover and ‘destabilize’ his country.

“Now the situation becomes even more dangerous. We have information that over 100 mercenaries of the Wagner Group have moved towards the Suwałki Gap near Grodno in Belarus,” the prime minister said, according to the state TV Telewizja Polska. “They will probably be disguised as Belarusian border guards and will help illegal immigrants to enter Polish territory, destabilize Poland, but they will also probably try to infiltrate Poland pretending to be illegal immigrants, and this creates additional risks,” the Polish leader cautioned.

German state TV Deutsche Welle reported:

Poland on Monday accused Belarus’ and Russia’s secret services of organizing an influx of migrants into the European Union through the Polish border.

“We’re talking about an operation organized by the Russian and Belarusian secret services that is getting more and more intense,” Polish Deputy Interior Minister Maciej Wasik said.

“We need many more forces at the border,” he said, according to Polish news agency PAP.

He said that the situation “is not as chaotic today as it was two years ago,” when thousands of migrants were left stranded on the Poland-Belarus border. (…)

On Monday, the border guard called on the defense ministry to send 1,000 additional troops to the border.

Polish border guard chief Tomasz Praga said that Belarusian secret services had become “a criminal group that is masterminding illegal immigration” and had been “making huge profits from it.”

“This would not be possible without the involvement of Belarusian authorities,” he said.

According to Praga, 19,000 migrants have attempted entry into Poland from Belarus so far in 2023, compared to 16,000 during the previous year.

The border guard said that 160 migrants tried to enter Poland from Belarus on Sunday and 147 attempted the crossing on Sunday.

This is not the first time Russia has been poised to weaponize illegal immigrants against Poland and Eastern Europe.

In the autumn of 2021, Legal Insurrection reported a “massive migrant wave as thousands of illegal immigrants converge on its eastern borders.” These migrants, mostly from Syria and other Arab countries, attacked European border guards. “Bands of migrant men armed with wire cutters and shovels have clashed with Polish and Lithuanian border police,” we reported.

Poland is coordinating with neighboring Lithuania to avert a scenario similar to the one in 2021. “Polish and Lithuanian leaders held an urgent meeting on Thursday, warning they are bracing for possible provocations from Moscow and Minsk,” the French TV channel Euronews reported on August 3. “Both nations on NATO’s eastern flank have beefed up border security following the arrival of thousands of mercenaries from the Russian Wagner group following their aborted mutiny in June.”

While Poland and other frontier eastern European states are determined to secure their borders from illegal immigration, the EU is forcing them to open their door to migrants, mostly from Muslim-majority countries of North Africa and the Middle East. British weekly The Spectators reported last month that “Poland has declined to participate in the European Union’s latest plan to relocate migrants and asylum seekers within the bloc, with countries who refuse being expected to pay €20,000 per refugee. Hungary has also voted against the pact, while Malta, Lithuania, Slovakia, Bulgaria have quietly abstained. ”

    In the next article up there some guy coming into TX with firearms not shovels. If you’re so froggy to shoot folks you could drive down to the TX border andlet us know how it works out.

So long as the Russian Federation exists intact and Belarus’ Putin backed dictator exists, this kind of thing can be expected. The end of Putin and the RF can help lessen this problem. Russia has devolved into a nuisance state and will not recover in its current form..

    Only if one is a globalist with allegiance to the WEF/NWO/ETC. You want to end the Russian Federation…. hard to dodge the MIRVs. Exactly who broke the agreements and promises after the fall of the USSR. Who chose not to end it with a bang. Be careful what you want… it may be your last.

      I am far from a globalist. My opinion of the future of the RF has been, for years, that on its own it will break up from its own corruption and unworkability similar to the USSR. This war may just hasten that. Last month when William Burns, CIA head, went to Kiev and later in a seminar in England said he planned to recruit new people all over Russia in view of the turmoil in Moscow. I wondered why talk about it publicly, then I figured why not? There is plenty of willing opposition to Putin there already.

      Putin does not care about agreements made as he will find ways around them. He has publicly said what he wanted for the future of Russia. It is not a good future for Russia’s western neighbors..

        Corruption? Unworkability?

        Perhaps you’re confusing the Russian Federation with the corrupt, incompetent, divided and crumbling nation you now live in.

        Have you watched Putin or Lavrov speeches. Truly intelligent, sober adults, like the leaders we used to have generations ago.

        Russia is demographically dying. In another 30 years it will be totally impotent. Letting the nation die of its own accord is far different from hastening its death. Great…. having the USA opening fomenting discord in Russia. The CIA did a good job in Ukraine … in Iraq, In Libya and in D.C. When we won WWII the old adage used was keep friends close and enemies closer…. so with the collapse of the USSR… Clinton and all rubbed the Russians’ noses in it. Russia has always been run by strong men exceopt in the short Duma period between abdication and October Revolution…. mostly bad.. but what and who comes next…. lose the foment and things get worse? The Russians do no have a strong horse in the stable to assume power…. Putin and his ilk are small in number and aging. There was no need to push all of this except for $$$$$ in that corrupt country …. Ukraine. Add to that the payback battalion of Lindeman and Nuland. Keep those iodine tablets handy and stay away from strategic targets.

Wow, that’s all? Polish authorities should visit the U.S. southern border where that many “migrants” cross the border weekly.

    Well it looks like the drive-by downvoter has come through and cast many downvotes w/out any comment. Wish the system would indicate who upvotes & downvotes so we could all see who this downvote troll is. But guess we can’t have everything.

Russian leadership are Irredentists. From Peter the Great, through Catherine II, to Lenin and Stalin and now Putin.

Catherine II shipped Russian settlers across the border into Transcaucasia, Theodosia, Rostov on the Don, Crimea etc. The Khanate leaders in the region fought back. Catherine used the pretext of saving Russian settlers’ lives to invade and subjugate non-Russians into the Russian Empire. Sets up Irredentist behavior.

Both Kerenski and Lenin wanted Finland to remain a vassal state after deposing Nicolas II (Grand Duchy of Finland). They were forced by political circumstances to cede the Duchy to Finnish Social Democrats (doctrinaire Marxists). Lenin then engineered a Red Finn revolt in Tampere, Finland, which led to the defeat of Lenin’s Red proxy army in Finland. A very bloody affair. Irredentism.

Lenin’s Bolshevik forces (and red anarchists) burned, raped, looted and murdered their way through Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. German (and Finn) forces ejected the Bolsheviks from the Baltic. (Treaty of Tartu)

Stalin claimed the Finns were endangering Russians living near Leningrad, engineered a fake border incident, and invaded Finland. The Winter War. Irredentism. (former Grand Duchy)

Stalin annexed Estonia, Latvia and Lithuanian and invaded Poland. More Irredentism.

Putin claimed hordes of Ukrainian fascists were flooding into the Don river basin and murdering thousands of Russian pensioners living in the region. (and Crimea) Hardcore irredentism.

Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine are independent countries with free agency. Denying that free agency – by tacit approval of Russian military adventurism – sets up the Russian irredentist chessboard.

    My guess is the Poles aren’t going to mess around. They have long memories when it comes to the Russkis.

    The chaos in this region (and the world generally since Biden was put in office) is by design. The left/swamp axis in this country wants war – not for any benevolent reason, but to make money and enslave US citizens.
