Poland faces a tide of refugees from Georgia. According to Polish radio, about 100 people a day stand in Polish-Belarusian checkpoint in Terespol and request a political asylum.


The situation aggravated since May 2009, when Georgians started arriving to Poland via Brest massively and request the status of refugee - RIA Novosti.

According to Eva Pehota, the representative of the department for foreigners' affairs, now the number of refugees from Georgia exceeded the one from Chechnya.

Over 3000 Georgian citizens requested asylum from Polish authorities from May to August 2009, the department states. Whereas in 2000-2008 there were only 400 with that request.

Pehota added that 90 of Georgians arriving at the border, 90 per cent are Kurds, mostly aged from 18 to 65, often poorly educated or even illiterate.
