Onet reported on Wednesday evening that at the turn of March and April 2024, young soldiers patrolling the section of the border between Poland and Belarus near the town of Dubicze Cerkiewne had to face 50 illegal migrants who crossed the barrier. First warning shots were fired into the air and then into the ground. The foreigners finally withdrew. WP added on Thursday that shots were also supposed to be fired when the foreigners withdrew to Belarus.

The Border Guard notified the Military Police. Polish soldiers were handcuffed and led away “like bandits.” Proceedings were initiated against two people and they were suspended.
