Contrairement à ce que laisse entendre la BBC, il s’agirait uniquement de poursuivre le bétonnage de la frontière de l’UE.
Watchtowers on Poland-Russia border ’not linked’ to Ukraine conflict
Poland says its plan to build watchtowers on its border with the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad is not linked to the Ukraine crisis.
Joanna Rokicka, a spokeswoman for the Polish Border Guard, told EUobserver on Tuesday (7 April) that the scheme, which is part-funded by the European Commission, was agreed “quite some time ago, before the events in Ukraine”.
“We are building the towers purely for migration-control purposes. It’s not designed to prevent any situation linked to the current crisis in Ukraine”.
A spokesman for the Polish foreign ministry, who asked to remain anonymous, added: “Small-border traffic between Poland and Kaliningrad is important, with almost 7 million Polish and Russian crossings over the green line each year”.
“This is designed to prevent illegal crossings and it’s not linked to the current situation in Ukraine”.
