On November 12th, a body of a young man was found in the Polish woods. A 20-year-old Syrian citizen was found dead by the police of Podlaskie Voivodeship near the border with Belarus.
Polish officials did not reveal the name of the dead. According to the statement released by the police of the Podlaska region, activities carried out in the place where the body was found did not allow for unequivocal determination of the cause of death.
The Polish board guards were accused of cruel treatment of those refugees who had managed to enter the Poland’s territory. The numerous reports indicated that migrants were hardly beaten and sent back to Belorussian territory. Thus, the real reason behind the death of the young Syrian can only be assumed.
The incident brings the death toll on the Polish-Belorussian border to at least nine reported victims.
Wczoraj w lasach, niedaleko granicy, pod Wólką Terechowską, odnalezione zostały zwłoki młodego mężczyzny narodowości syryjskiej. Przeprowadzone w miejscu odnalezienia ciała czynności, nie pozwoliły na jednoznaczne ustalenie przyczyny śmierci. pic.twitter.com/RhlADj0IdD

Since the summer, thousands have been lured by a new way to slip into Europe, through Belarus.
A representative of the border committee of Belarus claimed that the situation in the refugee camp near Grodno on the border with Poland remains tense. Currently, about 2 thousand migrants stay there, waiting for their chance to get into the EU.
The situation is growing more dangerous as winter approaches. Belorussian security forces are supplying the camp with food and water, delivering necessary heating supplies. Emergency from the Grodno region are on duty at the camp.
However, not all the refugees are staying in the camp, waiting for the invitation to Poland. The most desperate among them are trying to cross the borders with other European countries.
Together with Poland, Lithuania and Latvia are reinforcing their borders amid the increasing flow of refugees.
While all attention is focused on the refugee camp near Grodno, on the border with Poland, refugees continue to storm the fences in other regions.
A new footage has been recently published, showing the groups of desperate refugees attempting to cross the Lithuanian border through the marshy areas.
Thousands of refugees have become hostages of the EU migration policy, trying to survive under the border fences, while the officials on the both sides are yet to take any measures to resolve the crisis.
Poland accused Belarus of “fully” controlling migrant groups who were attempting to enter Polish territory. Warsaw said they were used for hybrid attacks against the EU country. In its turn, Minsk is denying any accusations, blaming Warsaw for an “inhumane attitude” towards the refugees.
No solution seems to be found in the coming days. Meanwhile, winter frosts are coming to the region.
