Poland Set To Construct €350M Border Wall To Stop Migrant Crossings From Belarus

Poland has passed a draft bill to construct the new border wall costing more than €350 million to prevent illegal migrants entering from Belarus, euronews has revealed.

According to the proposed bill, Poland will also install movement detectors at the Belarusian border, preventing anyone from coming within 200 metres of the wall.

Since August, thousands of migrants from the Middle East and Africa have tried to cross the Polish border from Belarus.

Poland has already sent thousands of soldiers to the border while declaring a state of emergency in the region.
