Ex-Ambassador: Belarus trains migrants to attack the border

Warsaw - The former Belarusian ambassador to France and Poland, Pavel Latushka, has accused ruler Alexander Lukashenko of training Afghans and Iraqis to attack the Polish border. “Lukashenko is using the migration crisis to smuggle people with military experience into the EU. They are trained in Belarus to carry out terrorist acts,” he told the news platform EU Observer.

For this purpose, Afghan and Iraqi war veterans were selected and flown to Belarus. There they were trained by Belarusian special forces in a training camp near the village of Opsa in the north-west of the country. The use of weapons for clashes at the border was also practiced.

Latushka was convinced that Belarus' rulers would next start a local military conflict on the EU border. At the same time he will want to sell the world the image of a humanitarian crisis and blame the Europeans for it.

Merkel telephones Putin about the migrant crisis
The former ambassador relied on high-ranking sources from the Belarusian secret service. Latushka fled to Warsaw after joining the opposition movement against Lukashenko.

On Tuesday, Poland's ambassador to Berlin, Andrzej Przylebski, expressed concern to Junge Freiheit that there could be first shots at the border. Belarusian security forces have already targeted Polish soldiers.

Meanwhile, the outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) phoned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday about the tense situation on the Polish-Belarusian border, where thousands of migrants are trying to get into the EU, some by force. Merkel asked Putin to influence the Lukashenko regime, said government spokesman Steffen Seibert.
