Warsaw Monday (10 October) stated that Polish citizens who live in Belarus should leave the country. Relations between the two countries have become more difficult due to the conflict in Ukraine.
This advice is very similar to the one that was given to Poles in Russia in September, which is an ally to Belarus.
The government published a guideline for travelers on its website. It stated that “We recommend Polish citizens living on the territory of Republic of Belarus leave its territories with all available private and commercial resources.”
After Poland accused its eastern neighbour of orchestrating a crisis at its border, relations between Poland and Minsk deteriorated. The Russian invasion has also made them more difficult.
Warsaw claims that the state is repressing Belarus’s Polish minorities. Some community leaders were jailed.
