Antonov says the US is to blame for the migration crisis on the EU border


WASHINGTON, 18 Dec. The migration crisis on the eastern borders of the European Union was not caused by Belarus, but was the result of attempts by Western countries to impose their vision of democracy on the world, Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov said in an interview with the American weekly Newsweek. He called for abandoning the language of sanctions and threats against Belarus and solving the problem within the framework of international humanitarian law.

& # 34; The deepest reason for this situation lies in the attempts of Western countries, including the United States, to impose their vision of democracy around the world. This activity by the United States and its partners over the past decades has led to a series of regional conflicts. As a result, we have seen a dramatic deterioration in the security situation in the Middle East and North Africa, an economic downturn and massive flows of migration & # 34; – quoted by the publication of the Russian ambassador.

“Therefore, Belarus has become a transit point for refugees. It was not Minsk’s fault,” he stressed. The West accuses the Belarusian authorities of deliberately importing refugees who are trying to cross over to Poland and Lithuania to put pressure on the European Union. The European Union has done everything to aggravate the situation with migrants, said in Minsk “We believe that the only way out of the situation is a constructive dialogue with Minsk,” Antonov said. countries of the Middle East and Africa. In November, the situation on the Belarusian-Polish border escalated. Several thousand people camped near the barriers. They tried to break through the cordon more than once, their attempts were suppressed by the security forces. At the same time, the Polish side used water cannons and tear gas, and the bodies of dead migrants were repeatedly found in the border strip. Minsk stated that they were not the organizers of the migration crisis. President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko also noted that Minsk will no longer restrain the flow of illegal migrants to the EU countries: because of the West's sanctions, there is “neither money, nor effort.” Border guards of Belarus have repeatedly stated about the forcible expulsion of migrants by Lithuania, Poland and Latvia to Belarusian territory. “Soldiers!
