Poland: Pushbacks work and are an absolute requirement to defend borders.
The results are clear.
– No recorded attempts to illegally cross Polish border from Belarus since summer.
* The V4 Report will question the accuracy of ‘none since the summer’ but at least the attempts have been drastically reduced.
– During its peak, Polish border guards noticed attempts of illegal crossing from the Belarusian side, detained the bulk of the offenders, and then turned them back to Belarus. In total, the Poles have counted 39.5 thousand violators of the Belarusian-Polish border since early this year.
But on Dec 28, no illegal attempts were made, and only about 30 illegals were seen near the border…and they ran when spotted by the Polish guards.
** Again we question the accuracy of no illegal attempts since this summer, but the activity has greatly ceased…thanks to the determined policies of Poland.
