On the evening of January 18th, a Polish armed serviceman on the road bridge of the Kozlovichi checkpoint entered the Belarusian territory for 20 metres, and then returned to Poland. Then, a couple of hours later, the equipped soldier again violated the Belarusian border in the same area, and after a while returned to the territory of his country.

The neighbouring party was informed about these facts. Further bilateral data exchange will take place within the framework of the correspondence of the offices of the border commissioners.

The State Border Committee of Belarus believes that the ongoing provocative actions of the Polish side, including the spread of fakes, indicate Poland’s desire to artificially escalate tensions and give the appearance of fighting hybrid threats.

“Despite the unfriendly steps of the neighbouring side, the position of Belarus remains the same: all sharp and controversial situations must be resolved through constructive bilateral contacts and an open dialogue,” the State Border Committee said in a statement.
