On Saturday, six Latvian-Belarusian border crossers were admitted to Latvia

On Saturday, six Latvian-Belarusian border crossers were admitted to Latvia, the State Border Guard informed.

These persons have been detained for illegal crossing of the state border. These people were not prevented from crossing the border on humanitarian grounds.

In total, on November 27, 16 people tried to cross the Latvian-Belarusian border illegally. Since 10 August, a total of 2,586 people have been deterred from crossing the border illegally.

Since the introduction of the state of emergency, 74 people have not been prevented from crossing the border on humanitarian grounds, and a total of 426 third-country nationals have been detained illegally this year.

As reported, in view of the increased pressure of illegal immigration, the Latvian government has declared a state of emergency in Ludza, Krāslava and Augšdaugava counties, as well as in Daugavpils. In the summer, the government announced it from August 11 to November 10, but later extended it to February 10.

As part of an extensive hybrid attack on the regime of Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko, attempts have been made in recent months to send thousands of illegal immigrants from Belarus to Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, most of whom have arrived in Belarus as tourists from Iraq.
