Poland has introduced a buffer zone of more than 60 kilometers on the border with Belarus

Starting Thursday, a buffer zone will be introduced on the Polish-Belarus border, aimed at strengthening security and controlling the situation with illegal migration. At midnight, an order signed by the head of the Polish Ministry of Internal Affairs, Tomasz Siemoniak, came into force, introducing a temporary ban on staying in certain areas of the border territory.

The ban covers an area of ​​more than 60 kilometers along the border. On a section of 44 kilometers, the ban applies at a distance of 200 meters from the border line, and on a section of 16 kilometers - approximately two kilometers from the border. The buffer zone will operate in the areas of responsibility of the border outposts in Narevka, Belovezhye, Dubichi Church and Cheremsha. The ban on staying in this zone will be in effect for 90 days, with the possibility of extension.

According to the Polish Ministry of Internal Affairs, the territory of the restricted zone mainly does not include populated areas and tourist routes. This is done in order to minimize inconvenience to local residents, tourists and people engaged in professional activities. The authorities strive to ensure maximum safety with minimal restrictions for the population.
