Brussels / Potsdam - There is currently a lot of need for discussion, especially with Belarus.

“This is an attempt at blackmail that is going on.

One can only say: Europe has to stand together here, ”said the head of government.

He and members of the cabinet had previously spoken to EU representatives and EU MPs from Brandenburg about the situation on the German-Polish border, where many refugees from Belarus and Poland are currently coming to Germany without permission.

Stübgen hopes for a controlled entry despite the bottlenecks

Interior Minister Michael Stübgen (CDU) believes that the significantly increased number of migrants entering Brandenburg via Belarus has so far been under control.

"In the month of September we have an approximate six-fold increase in the number of migrants who come to Brandenburg across the land border compared to August," said Stübgen on Thursday in the state parliament in Potsdam.

Stübgen hopes for a controlled entry despite the bottlenecks

The Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko had declared in response to EU sanctions that he would no longer stop migrants.

The EU accuses him of smuggling people in in an organized manner.

The number of people arriving rose sharply in September and October.

The people come from Iraq, Syria and other crisis areas.

It must be ensured that the burdens caused by a flow of refugees are distributed, said Woidke.

“People have to be treated humanely.” That is the big challenge.

Together with Poland and the other European states, the EU must look for solutions, even if there has been a different level of readiness among the states in the past.

But that cannot be accepted.
