Poland received support from Olaf Scholz in the construction of border fortifications. Even building the wall is a matter for the Polish government and it is not up to Germany to criticize it.

Olaf Scholz defended Poland against criticism of strengthening its border with Belarus. The EU partner is facing a very dramatic challenge and needs solidarity, said the SPD politician on Monday evening at an event of the “Süddeutsche Zeitung”. When asked whether he was in favor of building a wall on the EU’s external border, the Chancellor-designate of a traffic light coalition said: “I think that if the Polish government makes such a decision, it is not for us to say not to do.” It is too easy to judge something from a distance, but not to be able to say for yourself how to do it better. “I think that what is being done there will certainly contribute to the fact that it is not so easy to just continue this shameful game there,” added Scholz, referring to people smugglers and the Belarusian government. This is accused of deliberately bringing migrants into the country in order to then bring them to the EU’s external border.

Scholz called for “clear, tough” sanctions against Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko. This is a “very bad dictator” and has lost all legitimation. One must work to ensure that a democratic process can take place in Belarus. He also supported EU sanctions against airlines and aid to people in the Belarusian-Polish border area. Support is also important when people return to their homeland. One shouldn’t play the game of Lukashenko and the smuggler, who lured people to Belarus with false promises.
