Belarusian president made a loud statement about strengthening the border the day before.
Belarus has strengthened its border with Ukraine, while Poland and Lithuania intend to close it altogether. Representatives of these two EU countries commented on the situation.
Thus, Lithuanian Interior Minister Rita Tamashyunene said that neither the heads of border points nor the head of the Lithuanian Border Guard Service had received information about any changes on the Lithuanian-Belarusian border.
In turn, Minister of Foreign Affairs Linas Linkevicius said that the current Belarusian government shifts the blame for the situation in the country to external forces.
вЂњThis is due to the desire to demonstrate the presence of some threat at any cost. If there is no such threat, it must be found,вЂќ the minister said.
Meanwhile, the Polish Foreign Ministry confirmed that the border with Belarus is not closed.
вЂњAccording to the information received from the border guards, at moment the Polish-Belarusian border is functioning normally, without any changes,вЂќ the agency said.
