Migrants from Iraq stuck on the Belarusian-Polish border do not lose hope of getting into the European Union, despite several unsuccessful attempts to storm the border.
One of the Yezidi women who is at the border told: "I don't want to return to Iraq, because life there is difficult, we constantly live under the fear that at any moment ISIS terrorists may break into our tents in the camps of Iraq and Kurdistan and kill us or take us into slavery. Our life there is not safe," Gulya Zer, a 35-year-old Iraqi refugee, told local Yezidi bloggers.
According to the Belarusian Red Cross, as of the end of December, about 600 migrants live in the logistics center "Bruzgi". Among them are dozens of Yazidi families. The logistics center is a warehouse where an improvised camp was set up, mattresses and tents are placed in rows where shipping containers once stood. The Belarusian authorities and the Belarusian Red Cross provided the refugees with food and other essential necessities.
As the temperature drops below zero, life on the border becomes more and more difficult. It's still so cold in the heated warehouse that the people inside don't take off their outerwear.
While most migrants say they want to get to Germany, some of the refugees and migrants claim they are ready to settle in any country to avoid having to return to Iraq.
"If Belarus, Russia, Poland, Lithuania or any other country gives us asylum, I will agree, there is no difference for us. I will never go back to Iraq, we have nothing there, we have nowhere to go back, our children have no future there," says Bakr, a 30-year-old Yazidi refugee from Sinjar.
Several hundred Iraqi migrants have already left Belarus on evacuation flights organized by the Iraqi government, and more and more people are beginning to agree to return with the help of the UN International Organization for Migration.
However, some migrants are ready to continue waiting in the warehouse, to endure hunger and cold in the hope of finally reaching Europe.
