The convoy, consisting of three trucks, is on hold at the border crossing with Belarus in Bobrowniki. The shipment includes blankets, beds and tents with heating and equipment, as well as personal protective equipment, Michał Kuczmierowski, the president of the Government Agency for Strategic Reserves, said on Sunday.
“As predicted, the transport sits at the border in Bobrowniki. We are waiting for the decision of the Belarusian side. A diplomatic note was sent yesterday, we are waiting for a reaction”, Kuczmierowski told state news agency PAP.
Kuczmierowski also said that the agency is also ready to send food and medicines.
“Such transport is also prepared, but sending medicines and food requires confirmation of the exact needs by the Belarusian side”, Kuczmierowski stated.
He added that in the case of the two previous transports with humanitarian aid to Belarus, Poland did not receive any official response.
Polish lawmakers last week backed a government plan to build a wall on the country's border with Belarus in a bid to stave off an influx of migrants from the Middle East.
Late last month, the Polish lower house voted overwhelmingly to extend a state of emergency in parts of two regions along the country's eastern border with Belarus by two months amid a growing migrant surge.
The European Commission and Warsaw say the flow of migrants has been orchestrated by Belarus as a form of hybrid warfare designed to put pressure on the European Union over sanctions it imposed on Minsk.
