The Belarussian authorities said an Afghan national holding a fake French passport, who intended to cross to Lithuania has been recognized and detained by the country’s border officials.

During the investigations, the Afghan national has said he wanted to reach Europe, according to Belarussian media.

The Afghan citizen will be kept in detention until his real identity is recognized, as per the existing reports.

Belarus is the route for many migrants from different countries, including Afghanistan, to reach Europe.

Nearly a month ago, the Belarussian police announced that several Afghan nationals who had illegally entered the country were detained.

Since the return of the Taliban to power in Afghanistan in August 2021, millions of Afghans have migrated to the neighboring countries of Iran, Pakistan and elsewhere fearing persecution and death threats.

Many Afghans have taken rather risky routes to reach Europe through land and sea. Currently, thousands of Afghan families are stranded in Turkey and Greece hoping to reach Western European countries.
