The UN warns of the fate of refugees in Europe

The UN warned on Monday against the “normalization” of the illegal refoulement of refugees at Europe’s borders and denounced the violence and human rights violations that are killing people.

“What is happening at the borders of Europe is legally and morally unacceptable and must stop”, writes the High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, to the address of the authorities, adding “fear that these deplorable practices will normalize and do not become the rule”.

A first alert in November

In November, the head of the UN agency had already spoken about the fate of migrants stranded on the Belarusian side of the border with the European Union, in Poland. He told our colleagues from LCI to be “worried” for them and denounced “the manipulation of these people in distress” and “the exploitation of their desire for a better life cannot be accepted”. The diplomat had called on all the European countries concerned to “find solutions”.
