The idea of artificial creation of the migration crisis by the Belarusian authorities on the borders of the European Union is quite vulnerable and unstable, a Belarusian political analyst Andrei Kazakevich has written on Facebook.
“Still, Belarus is not Turkey, geographically speaking. If migrants get through the air corridor, their transportation route is not difficult to trace. This is not an endless Turkish-Syrian or Turkish-Iraqi border or the Mediterranean Sea,” Kazakevich writes.
In his opinion, the European Union “only needs to exert pressure on the governments of the countries from which the planes take off so that they don’t take off or take off as often or are subjected to additional controls.”
“Given how much money the Europeans and the U.S. are giving to the governments of Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. (including on countering illegal peacekeeping), it doesn’t seem that difficult,” said the political scientist.
In general, says Andrey Kazakevich, “getting into Belarus by transit can’t be so massive as to create a migration crisis in the full sense of the word. And transit countries can also be influenced,” he says.
It is worth mentioning that during his visit to Lithuania on July 5th, the President of the European Council, Charles Michel said that next week he would discuss the repatriation of Iraqi citizens to Lithuania with the President of Iraq. They are the majority of illegals detained on the Lithuanian-Belarusian border.
