πŸ‡§πŸ‡ΎAfter the European Union imposed sanctions on Minsk last june over serious human rights violations, a new humanitarian crisis is developing at the borders of Belarus and the EU.

➑️ Belarusian President Aleksander Lukashenko’s government retaliates by pushing thousands of migrants into neighbouring eastern European countries, which in response have sealed their borders.

A political tug of war which has turned the eastern borders of the union into a sometimes deadly trap for thousands of asylum seekers.

πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ί The European Union must remain firm in its principles, without ever abandoning the rule of law and the principle of acceptance towards those who flee from wars or humanitarian crises.
