Eisenhüttenstadt / Potsdam - In the months of January to July 2021, a total of 26 people were registered with reference to the Belarus route.

In August, however, there were 474 and in September 1914 people.

This month this number has already been exceeded: As of October 11, 1934 federal police officers found people who had entered Germany illegally via Belarus and Poland.

The asylum centers are filling up, especially in Brandenburg.

Currently, 2600 people are accommodated at various locations, said Olaf Jansen, head of the central immigration office in Eisenhüttenstadt.

The usual capacity of 3500 places was temporarily increased to 4600 by means of heated tents.

Probably one will go up to 5000 places.

People form a chain against "dying in the Mediterranean"

Activists formed a human chain across Duisburg on Saturday to draw attention to “dying on the escape routes”.

The snake is a "chain of rescue for human rights", announced the organizers of the "Seebrücke" movement in advance.

This should set an example for more humanity and against the death of migrants in the Mediterranean.

ECJ: Poland has to pay a fine in the dispute over opencast mining

In the dispute over the Turow lignite mining on the border with Saxony, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has sentenced Poland to a fine.

Despite an interim ECJ order from May, Warsaw did not stop lignite mining, according to an order from ECJ Vice-President Rosario Silva de Lapuerta on Monday.

Therefore, from now on Poland has to pay 500 for every day on which it does not comply with the order.

But the facilities are not overcrowded.

"It's not a dramatic situation, but it's a tough situation," said Jansen.

The big challenge is the Covid quarantine for all comers in order to prevent the virus from spreading.

Jansen expects a further increase in arrivals.

"We don't see any effort to stop this," he said.

In May, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko announced in response to tightened sanctions by the European Union that it would no longer prevent migrants from continuing to travel to Poland and the Baltic States.

Several EU states accuse Lukashenko of bringing people from crisis regions to the EU's external border in an organized manner.

Poland, Latvia and Lithuania have tightened border security.

Thousands get through anyway, partly with the help of smugglers.
