Lithuania boosts number of border troops & orders them to build barbed-wire fence as migrant crisis worsens on Belarusian frontier

Lithuania has deployed extra troops to its state frontier with Belarus, the country’s Ministry of National Defence revealed on Thursday, noting that there are now 1,200 servicemen on the border trying to prevent illegal migration.

Arvydas Anušauskas also noted that the troops had been tasked with building a concertina barbed wire fence to stop asylum seekers illegally crossing the border.

On 21 September, Lithuania revealed that 2,800 migrants from across the Belarusian border had applied for asylum in the country since the start of August – significantly more than in the entire year of 2020. There have also been reports of deaths at the frontier.
