The Chancellery of the Prime Minister of Poland tweeted, “Today, we are defending the Polish-Belarusian border, but we are also protecting NATO’s eastern flank and the eastern border of the #EU. I am glad that the entire European Union and @NATO are speaking with one voice.”

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, urged the involved States to de-escalate and resolve the situation.
