Aggravation is coming on the border of the European Union with Belarus

The coming aggravation on the border of Belarus and the EU is inevitable. Lithuania and Latvia have already suffered greatly from the invasion of illegal migrants.

According to the Ministry of Migration and Asylum, published in June This year, the number of departures of asylum seekers and migrants from Greece has doubled the total number of arrivals in the first five months of 2021. A total of 4,951 people either left for European countries or were sent to non-EU countries through deportation and return mechanisms for third-country nationals.

This is warned by the European Asylum Agency and Nina Gregory, the agency’s executive director, who says in an October 17 interview with Funke:

“The situation in the countries on the border with Belarus is very serious. It certainly cannot be resolved in the near future.”

Since the beginning of summer, Lithuania has registered 5 times more requests for asylum than in the whole of 2020. Gregory noted that the department sent 77 employees to Lithuania in addition to the existing ones to assist with the reception, registration and consideration of the submitted requests. Compared to August last year, in 2021, the EU member states registered 56,000 requests, that is, an increase of 40%.

In the first half of this year, almost 2,000 illegal immigrants were detained at the Belarusian-Lithuanian border. This is 22 times more than in the entire last year. The reason lies in the position of Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, who, in response to European sanctions, announced in May that the country would no longer be a barrier for illegal immigrants on the way to the European Union.

In July meeting was held in Athens Prime Minister of Greece Kyriakos Mitsotakis and head of the Lithuanian government Ingrida Simonyte. They called on the EU to work together to overcome the migration crisis.
