BREST, Belarus — Every day, the train between the Belarusian city of Brest and the Polish border town of Terespol is packed. A train that usually comprises three or four cars now has eight.
“You have to see it to believe it,” says 32-year-old Magomed Kadyrov. “I don’t know whom to trust, whom to talk to. Border officials don’t listen to us. There are a lot of us trying to get across. The other day, there were more than 700 people. The train from Brest to the border is now seven or eight cars long. Completely packed. Now there are more and more of us here.”
