“A dummy bomb was found on the border with Belarus on Monday morning,” the Border Guard (SG) reported on Monday. “The protruding cables and a watch with a repeated audible alarm were supposed to indicate that it is an explosive device,” the services pointed out, providing a photo of the object.
The Polish Border Guard indicated that the bomb was another provocation performed by the Belarusian regime.
“Another provocation by the Belarusian services. This morning a dummy bomb was found at the border… The protruding cables, a watch with a repeated audible alarm were supposed to indicate that it was an explosive device,” the services wrote on social media.
Representatives of the Polish government emphasise that the way the Belarusian side operates at the border with Poland shows “active involvement of Belarusian security officers in organising provocations and incidents aimed at Polish soldiers and Border Guard officers.”
According to the government, such actions are a form of psychological warfare aimed at unsealing the border.
