Lukashenko suddenly wants better relations with Poland; Polish president responds

Polish President Andrzej Duda has said Belarus must stop hybrid attacks on the border with Poland if Alexander Lukashenko, self-proclaimed President of Belarus, truly wants to improve relations with Poland.

Details: The Polish president made his remarks during a meeting with his Latvian counterpart Edgars Rinkēvičs on 17 August.

Quote from Duda: "These are hundreds of migrants whom the Belarusian regime has been trying to sneak into Poland for many months. This is no secret, as we have video evidence of what we rightly call a hybrid attack. It was none other than representatives of the Belarusian services, Belarusian officers who were involved in pushing the migrants to the borderline."

Details: Duda added that the Polish border with Belarus is also the European Union's border, so his country also bears responsibility before its European allies.

Background: On 11 August, Lukashenko said he was willing to improve Belarusian-Polish relations. "We are neighbours, and neighbours are not chosen, but given by God," the Belarusian dictator claimed.

Earlier, Lukashenko accused Poland of plotting aggression against Belarus.

The Belarusian dictator also alleged that the Wagnerites asked him to "let them head towards the West" as they "wanted an excursion to Rzeszów and Warsaw". Lukashenko later confessed to lying in this claim.
