EU news LIVE Poland shuts Belarus border as ‘shots fired’ – Germany tells EU ‘take action’ | World | News

Poland has accused Belarus of trying to destabilise it in order to force the EU to lift sanctions imposed on Minsk.

The Polish government said: “By creating an artificial migration route and cynically exploiting migrants, [Belarus strongman Alexandar Lukashenko] is trying to destabilize Poland, Lithuania and Latvia, and to force the European Union to lift the sanctions imposed on the Minsk regime.”

The EU has placed sanctions on Belarus for their fraudulent August 2020 presidential election, the results of which the EU does not recognise.

Sanctions include a ban on the overflight of EU airspace and on access to EU airports by Belarusian carriers of all kinds.
