This is a special edition of our show. We are here today to discuss an exceptional event taking place in Poland.
Emil Czeczko, a Polish soldier mobilized at the border, defected to Belarus and he asked for asylum!
Thousands of migrants are currently stationed at the Polish border with Belarus. They come mostly from the Middle East with the intent of crossing Poland to reach Germany. For months tensions grew and the Polish declared a state of emergency across the border preventing NGO-s and journalists from reaching the area. Nevertheless, Polish journalists and NGO-s managed to get there and help the migrants.
This defection comes as a surprise and this is why we invited Boyan Stanislavski, our cohost and also a Polish journalist to offer us his perspective on this very unusual event.
