Laurynas Kasčiūnas, the Chairman of the National Security and Defense Committee of the Seimas, and Tomas Tomilinas, a member of the Social Affairs and Labor Committee of the Seimas, discuss the migrant crisis in the TV3 news program “Karštai su tv3.lt”.
It seems that several thousand migrants have settled on the Lithuanian-Polish border for a long time, and Western European countries are encouraging migrants to enter in order to avoid deaths.
L. Kaščiūnas criticizes the proposal in the show, believing that this is exactly what Lukashenko is striving for. “The answer is very simple – if we let in migrants, there will be even more of these hungry and cold people. It is a huge business run by the Lukashenko regime itself, and it is an adult with smugglers in the Middle East. If we open the door uncontrollably, everything will become an ongoing process. “We are constantly hungry, cold, transporting children here and risking their fate,” he said.
According to L. Kasčiūnas, the policy of reversal is focused on the protection of human rights, as those moving towards Lithuania and Poland fall into the traps of the Lukashenko regime. Meanwhile, in pursuing its policy, Lithuania broke a lot of trump cards from the hands of the latter dictator.
T. Tomilinas also supports the political reversal of the show. According to him, it is obvious that a hybrid war is currently going on, which Lukashenko is losing. According to the politician, in his actions, A. Lukashenko first tried to destabilize political law in Lithuania, and later to force him to question foreign policy based on human rights. Neither, according to Tomilino, could be achieved.
And while Tomilin has no doubt that no human rights are being violated at the border, he sees one mistake.
“No one else is damaging our reputation like banning global television from working at the border. In my mind, this is the wrong decision. However, I am criticizing only a specific decision, not the whole policy. We are not doing anything wrong, but there could be humanitarian observers at the border, ”he suggested in the show.
Is Mr Lukashenko really losing this war? Or maybe Lithuania should allow at least migrant children and women?
