The diplomat noted that Tikhanovskaya and Guaido set an example for the refugees, as they told the & nbsp; European Union that sheltered them about the dangers in their countries.
“ They stated literally similar things: that they could no longer be on the territory of their country that they consider themselves to be temporarily displaced people or refugees in exile. That they are looking for protection, patronage, help '', & mdash; & nbsp; said Zakharova, stressing that the EU authorities believed these political emigrants.
Earlier, the Foreign Ministry spokesman commented on the accusations of a number of European countries that the migration Moscow is supposedly to blame in Europe. She stated that this testifies to an attempt by European politicians to find the culprit and evade responsibility.
Now, according to various sources, there are several thousand migrants at the Belarusian-Polish border. They are trying to break through the established fences, according to some reports, two large groups of illegal immigrants managed to penetrate into Poland.
Due to the current situation, the authorities of Poland and Lithuania have introduced a state of emergency in areas bordering Belarus.
The EU has repeatedly stated that it may impose new tough sanctions against Minsk.
