„In view of Latvia, Lithuania and Poland being confronted with an emergency situation characterised by a sudden inflow of nationals of third countries which have been instrumentalised by Belarus for political purposes, among the concrete measures being envisaged, the Commission is bringing forward a proposal for provisional emergency measures based on Article 78(3) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).“
„The measures included in this Decision are of a temporary, extraordinary and exceptional nature, and will complement border control measures with specific measures in the area of asylum and return. Given the current situation and taking into account the fact that the Union’s concerted actions have started to bring results in reducing arrivals, these measures should be applicable for a period of six months.“
