A "one Chechen village" a week, and a "small town" a month are transferred through the Belarusian-Polish border, most of them then trying to sneak into Germany and get refuge there, many are prosperous in this, Frankfurter Allgemeinewrites with reference to the evidence of police officers. In the morning, near the train station ticket offices of the Belarusian city of Brest can be seen more than a hundred people from Chechnya, and the same pattern is observed here every day. According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Germany, during the first half of 2013 an application for asylum in Germany, filed 9957 official Russian citizens, and nearly 90% of them came from Chechnya. 3,200 applications have been in the past year only.
The West believes that Belarus eased border controls for travelers to the EU. The Belarusian police are well aware of how many people are waiting in Belarus convenient way to cross to the West - those of 20,000 people. Last year 19,000 people entered Poland, 11 thousand had to go back, but eight - were able to stay. In Poland, there are only eight centers of temporary stay, so two-thirds of those successfully crossed the Belarusian-Polish border immediately "disappear" and got further to the West, mainly in Germany, although they required by law to wait for a decision on their application for asylum in Poland. When the train with potential migrants comes to Poland, first those who have permission to enter are allowed to leave. And then the guards in the building of the station began questioning those who left and listen to their stories. Those, whose stories have not been able to convince the border guards, a few hours later are sent on the same train back to Brest, and then they will take the next shot.
According to the German police, "big money is involved" in smuggle of Chechen across the border. Local people (Poles, Belarusians, Germans) make pretty good money on migrants - they sell tickets at inflated prices and rent housing. Recently a Chechen family with three children has filed an application for asylum in Germany, has a chance to earn an income, which most people in the North Caucasus can only dream of. News of this spread like wildfire, because those who left has excellent relationship with those who have so far remained at home, the newspaper said. Meanwhile, the refugees from Chechnya point to other reasons entirely, forcing them to leave their homeland. The main reason for the mass exodus of Chechens - the inability to psychologically endure monstrous outrage and humiliation, which are exposed daily the people of Chechnya by Kadyrovites. In an interview with Chechen Service of Radio Liberty, one of the leaders of the Chechen diaspora in Poland quoted Chechen refugees forced to languish in the Polish camps: "We can not psychologically endure humiliation and abuse by Kadyrovites. They do what they want. Kidnap whom they want, kill whom they want, take away the property whomever they want ... If you take up arms and go to the mountains, then immediately call you terrorists ... People just can not tolerate this lawlessness, can not stand psychologically, that is why so many are leaving. And the fact that there they had built something, so it is not for the common people, but for themselves ... " Department of Monitoring Kavkaz Center
