On Wednesday, Lukashenko said he was ready to suspend Russian energy flows if Poland closed its border with Belarus and the Kremlin repeated it was Minsk's own idea not agreed with Moscow. Some Russian gas and oil flows cross Belarus on their way to Europe.
 
Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin spokesman, said that pressure on Belarus over the migrant crisis triggers "a tough response" from Lukashenko.
