The video was posted on Twitter by former TVN24 journalist Piotr Czaban, who is currently active in the Podlaskie Volunteer Humanitarian Emergency Initiative, to help refugees on the eastern border of the Republic of Poland. In the description of the recording, he reported that the accident happened last night (5/6 October) in Białowiea.
The recording shows a refugee who likely tried to move from Belarus to the Polish side of the border. However, the man grabbed the barbed wire at the top of the border fence with his foot and hung upside down.
It is not known who the author of the recording is. The film shows that the witnesses to the accident (because of the uniform it can be concluded that they are officers or soldiers), did not hide their amusement from the fatal situation of the man trapped on the fence.
attention! The recording contains profanity.
“They scored, then bragged about their ‘adventurism’ and thus fueled hatred towards people” – commented on the behavior of the men visible in the film Piotr Czaban.
The recording also appeared on the Facebook profile of Podlaski’s Voluntary Humanitarian Service, which announced that it would file a notification with the prosecutor’s office in the case.
Netizens are angry
The film caused an uproar among netizens, who were not spared their criticism of the Border Police officers.
“It is bad and frightening that words are missing,” “They obviously enjoy this business very much,” “And how is it different from the Russian troops?” – Some comments look.
We asked the Border Guard Press Office to comment on this matter. We are waiting for the answer.
