Freezing to death: the migrants left to die on the Poland-Belarus border



Migrants are dying in Poland’s forested border with Belarus, as the countries are locked in a geopolitical standoff. Polish authorities accuse Belarus of deliberately abandoning migrants near its border in an attempt to destabilise the EU due to the bloc imposing sanctions on Belarus after its disputed election. Poland has responded by declaring an emergency zone, forbidden to journalists and activists, where it is believed that, hidden from sight, they are illegally forcing asylum seekers back over the border instead of processing applications. We follow Piotr Bystrianin, an activist trying to locate desperate migrants in the woods before the border guards do.
