134 - the number of illegal immigrants that crossed the border from Belarus on Monday night.
Absolute majority are single males in their 20s. Most of them are citizens of Iraq, many citizens of Iran, Syria, Tajikistan, Russia. Very few citizens of Belarus. They are usually well instructed how to behave on the border: immeditaley to raise the hands and to shout "Asylum, asylum". Which means that they are asking for political refuge and this forces Lithuanian border guards start long and painfull checking procedure who they are in reallity and if they are really persecuted in their homelands. They can't be deported while this checking procedure is not finshed ...
Initially many of them deliberately annihilated their documents to make more difficult to determine their identities. Many are telling fantastic stories: e.g. that they were persecuted in the Iraq and they hidded in the lories in Baghdad and many days and nights they traveled in secrecy to save their lifes ... (in such case I want to ask : Hey guy, you saw the map ? You know where is Baghdad and where the border between Belarus and Lithuania). Most recent fantastic stories are that they were legaly studying foreign students in Belarus and that Lukashenko regime started to persecute them and ..., threaten their life. So instead of returning back to their homelands they are heading to Lithuania for political refuge.
At the same time State security department and Police department are finding more and more information that in fact they are flying by plane directly to Minsk, are transfered by buses closer to the border with the help of Lukashenko regime authorities, are instructed by them where and how to cross the border. Of course not free of charge. So more and more often politicians here are using the term: we are at war. Hybrid war. And need to behave as in war situation.
