The union asked the acting General Director of PKP CARGO Vladislav Schepkovsky to refrain from railway transportation across the border with Belarus, in particular, through the border crossing in Kuznitsa-Belostotskaya, through which trains run to Bruzgi station, now this territory is occupied by migrants.

They reported that there are situations when refugees try to jump on passing trains and use them to illegally cross the border. Polish railroad workers know that refugees are trying to use the railroad areas to cross the border.
