Following an express procedure, Poland has announced that it is ready to start the construction of the previously announced wall along its border with Belarus, in order to protect the country from illegal immigrants’ invasion.

The project will be ready by June and its cost amounts to 353 million euros. The height of the wall will be 5.5 meters and will run 186 kilometers along the border of Poland with Belarus.

The immigrant accommodation centers that had been set up have emptied and flows have dropped considerably, but at least 12 people have died from cold or starvation in the forest on Poland’s border with Belarus in recent days.

Last fall, thousands of refugees and immigrants, mostly from the Middle East, tried to cross the border en masse – with Brussels claiming the flow was instigated by Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko.
