Polish Prime Minister Matthew Morawiecki today accused Belarus of “state terrorism” in the crisis caused by the influx of migrants on Poland’s border with Belarus, which is also the European Union’s eastern outer border.

“It is clear that what we are facing here is the manifestation of state terrorism,” the Polish prime minister said during a joint press conference with European Council President Charles Michel in Warsaw.

Mateusz Morawiecki denounced “discreet revenge” by Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko over Warsaw’s support for the Belarussian opposition.

The European Union must block flights from the Middle East to Belarus to stop the flow of migrants trying to enter the European Union from the eastern external border, the Polish prime minister said.

For his part, the President of the European Council said that the European Union should consider whether it is ready to finance the construction of fences to help countries like Lithuania to protect the Union’s external borders against the “hybrid attack” of Belarus.

Charles Michel explained to reporters after his meeting with the Polish Prime Minister that, based on the opinion of the Legal Service of the European Council, this is legally possible, based on the current European legal framework for infrastructure financing.

“I am a decision to be taken by the European Commission, but in any case, the legal point of view of the Council is absolutely clear,” he added.
