British troops being sent to Poland to help with migrant problem



British troops have deployed to Poland to "address the ongoing situation at the Belarus border".

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said a unit had been dispatched as tensions at the two nations' frontier soared, with Minsk accused of trafficking thousands of Middle Eastern migrants to the edge of the EU.


Strange that they can't be deployed to Dover to stop our own crisis.

They'd have to be deployed to France (again) to do that.

I imagine the UK govt solution to the Poland border crisis will be to fly the poor little migrants directly here. I expect our troops are going there to prepare the reception centres.

Its probably not even worth taking a bet on.

Don't know why you need to send Brit troops because It's illegal for an asylum seeker to enter Poland.. End of!...

The migrants are solely Belarusian problem.. nothing to do with any other country...

Or perhaps they're Sappers helping on the counter-mobility 'big barbed wire fence' task.

Its probably not even worth taking a bet on.

If they're solely the Belarussian's problem why are you so concerned that you've deployed loads of troops, threatened 'escalation' and accepted our help?

Anybody would think you (and us) are doing exactly as Vlad wants.

Hybrid warfare - difficult isn't it?

Article says just engineering support...

Shouldn't they be busy building a sea barrier in the channel?.

Aye, and look what happened the last time Britain sent troops to help Poland...

It all kicked off into the last major world wide unpleasantness. Out of interest, are there any German troops there this time round?

Is Belarus a diversion from the Russians harboured just off Ukraines border?

Nowadays the Bundeswehr will all have applied for a weeks leave pass..........to avoid any harsh words, or conflict so that Angela doesn't get upset.

Britain didn't send troops to Poland to help Poland. It sent troops to France and Belgium to help Poland.

Maybe the troops can be sent to Calais this time instead.
