Foreign Minister Anniken Huitfeldt believes Belarusian authorities are responsible for the migrant crisis on the border with Poland.

“I understand that Poland is in a very difficult situation,” Huitfeldt (AP) told NTB.

Huitfeldt has previously stated that Belarus has full and complete responsibility for the flow of migrants to the borders with Poland and Lithuania. 

She believes that the Belarusian authorities are using vulnerable people as a foreign policy pressure tool.

“This is a cynical use of people… It puts a lot of people in a terrible situation,” Huitfeldt stated.

  1. Is Poland still trying to regime-change Belarus? Is this counter-aggression?

    Poland’s Legionovo Police Training Center trained the neo-Nazi Right Sector snipers who escalated the Kiev 2014 demonstrations into an enraged revolution – coup, led by outside agitators like celebrity Western war criminal Bernard-Henri Levy, the acclaimed “architect” of our Libya holocaust war – with homicidal violence, according to a now-disappeared-in-Poland but still quoted article in the Polish leftwing journal Nie.

    Externally inciting regime-change is An Act of War, and the West would do well to back off.

    Come to think of it, the Jan.6 invasion of our Capitol looked like an overthrow attempt – and was, at least in Trump’s self-deluding mind – and we certainly didn’t like *that*.

    Time to DE-escalate against the Russians (and Belarusans) … and hold a once-every-4-years “unification referendum” on Taiwan to defuse *that* danger point.

    The ice caps are melting, and we’re still playing our Neanderthal (nuclear) Russian Roulette confrontation games??

    • a świstak siedzi i zawija te sreberka…

      claim bout Polish snipers are complete bull*. People are not allowed to bear weapons while crossing Ukrainian border. FYI info: there’ huuuuuge difference between “regime changing” and condemnation of fraudulent elections and not excepting any co-operation. Keep it mind that the bastard kidnapped a plane recently using his air force, all just to extract one of passengers onboard. Now he’s doing propaganda war using arranged media coverage from the Polish border. Claiming the “tourists” on the border were captured by Polish police at Poland’s territory and pushed into Belarus. I am not sure what makes you to demand that the West should back off. Your comment makes me think you’re “influencer” trying to appeal to readers to alter their perception of obvious wrongdoing. Cheers from Polish.
