Kinga Ksiazek, a consultant of Fundacja Institutum Orientalium NGO, has been deported from Brest.

Her colleague, Magdalena Kalinowska, has recently been denied entry to Belarus, Radio Racyja reports.

Kinga Ksiazek says Belarusian border guards did not give the reasons for deportation. They just guarded her to the train without any explanations.

“They took my passport. I was waiting for them about 20 minutes. They then said I was denied to enter the country, but did not explain why. They guarded me to the train and said I had to hurry up, because the train would not wait for me.”

Polish consultants of Fundacja Institutum Orientalium worked in Mahilou, Brest and Hrodna. The project “Business in Belarusian” offered training courses for Belarusian businessmen in Poland. Kinga Ksiazek thinks she was deported on political motives. She is going to appeal against denial to enter Belarus.
