Leaders of the Polish Union in Belarus in police custody

Radio Polonia:
Conflict between Belarus and Poland intensifies

Leaders of the Polish Union in Belarus have been taken by Belarussian police for questioning while the headquarets of the Union have been surrounded.Belarus authorities do not recognise the new authorities of the union questionning their independence.Minsk has expelled a third Polish diplomat on Tuesday describing the order as retaliation for Poland’s expulsion on Monday of a Belarus diplomat from Warsaw. Minsk accuses Poland of interference in its internal affairs and contacts with Belarus opposition. According to analysts in Poland this is not a conflict between Poland and Belarus it is rather president Lukashenko’s battle with the west. Poland should aim at evoking reactions from the European Union and show that the conflict is not an affair between Warsaw and Minsk. The Polish foreign Ministry is to present an official stand on the conflict on Thursday.
