Like other places in Belarus, Brest has seen violent anti-government protests, and Yunusova says signs of conflict are present in her village. She says his military service meant the family was "blacklisted" by Polish border guards. MUSLIM COUNTRYGulbarg Sayfova, whose husband is a political prisoner in Tajikistan, spent two months in Brest before she crossed the border in 2016. One Chechen asylum seeker who did not wish to give her name said she succeeded in making an asylum application and crossing the border on her 55th attempt. The Polish Border Guard told Reuters by email that there were no refugee blacklists and officers did not discriminate on religious grounds.
