Migration crisis prevention: Ukrainian border guards hold drill near Belarus border.

In Ukraine’s northern Chernihiv region, as part of the Polissia special operation, the country’s border guards have conducted an exercise involving reserve forces.

That’s according to the press center of the State Border Guard Service, Ukrinform reports.

Forces and means involved in the operation were deployed in four different sections of the border simultaneously to work out coordination of all units under the enhanced border protection protocol.

"The main task has been completed. As part of the reinforcement, we have practiced and fixed the required capabilities to respond to abrupt changes in the operational environment," said Oleksandr Chornyi, Chief of the local Border Guard Detachment.

As reported, on November 23, the active phase of the Polissia special interagency operation kicked off on the border with the Republic of Belarus. It is being coordinated by border guards, also engaging the National Guard, police, the Armed Forces, and other reserves involved in order to prevent a possible migration crisis and combat any illegal activity at the border.

On November 25, in Zhytomyr region, within the framework of the Polissia operation, more exercises were held to work out ensuring law and order in case of an escalation at the border with Belarus.

The situation on the Polish-Belarusian border has deteriorated sharply in recent weeks as hundreds of migrants are trying daily to force their way into Poland, breaking barbed wire barriers with the active support of Belarusian security forces.

Warsaw has blamed the Lukashenko regime and the Kremlin for engineering the crisis. At the same time, Poland is trying to build up broad international support and boost its border protection in the country’s east.
