Polish Foreign Ministry announced the expulsion of three Russian diplomats
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland has recognized three employees of the Russian Embassy in Warsaw persona non grata. Representatives of the Foreign Ministry informed Russian Ambassador Sergei Andreev about this, the ministry said in a statement.
The basis for such a decision was the commission by these people of actions that do not correspond to the status of a diplomat and harm Poland.
The Polish Foreign Ministry also said in a statement that the Polish authorities support the US sanctions imposed on Russia. The ministry noted that “jointly accepted and agreed decisions of the allies” became “an adequate response to hostile actions” on the part of Russia.
On April 15, US President Joe Biden imposed sanctions by his decree due to the “harmful external activities” of the Russian government. The sanctions include, among other things, the expulsion of 10 employees of the Russian diplomatic mission in Washington, among whom, it is said, are members of the special services. Also, American investors were prohibited from buying Russian government bonds from June 14.
