Polish Seim ( lower house of parliament) passed a law on the construction of the main fencing on the border with Belarus. The day before, the relevant bill was approved by the country's government. The law will now be sent to the Senate.
According to information from the Polish border guard, more than 6,000 attempts to cross the border illegally have been recorded since the beginning of this month, and more than 18,000 have been reported since the beginning of the autumn.
At the moment, there is a temporary barbed wire fence on the border of both countries. According to Warsaw's plans, the capital structure will be equipped with a motion monitoring and detection system and the budget will cost PLN 1.615 billion (over USD 400 million).
