Poland's Border Guard has asked the defense ministry to send another 1,000 troops to the border with Belarus, Deputy Interior Minister Maciej Wąsik said on Monday, amid an increase in attempts to illegally cross the frontier, APA reports citing foreign media.

The head of the Border Guard, Tomasz Praga, said this year 19,000 people had tried to cross the Polish-Belarusian border illegally, up from 16,000 last year.

"The general (Praga) asked to move another 1,000 soldiers to the Polish-Belarusian border," Deputy Interior Minister Maciej Wąsik said. Poland has built a face on the border with Belarus, equipped with electronic protection.
