Interior Minister Ivan Kubrakov has commented on whether arriving migrants pose a threat to Belarus

“Telegram channels report that guerrilla fighters penetrate as so-called illegal migrants. As the Interior Minister, I want to assure you that the situation is fully controlled by law enforcement officers,” Mr. Kubrakov said.

The official informed that 368 refugees had applied to the Interior Ministry for help. “They all are being assisted by the state. At the same time, 56 citizens – who did not have an opportunity to stay somewhere in hotels or find accommodation – had addressed us for this kind of help. Special points of assistance to refugees have been established in the Vitebsk and Gomel regions. These people are provided with all the necessary material and psychological assistance there,” he added.
