The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned the Ambassador of Poland because of the incident in Warsaw

Ambassador of Poland Krzysztof Krajewski was summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday.

Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau announced this at a press conference in Lodz, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“As for our relations with the Russian Federation, we know that the Polish ambassador in Moscow was summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry,” Rau said.

He added that he would not be ahead of events, but the principle of reciprocity always applies in international relations.

The minister stressed that the Polish side tried to convince the Russian side of the groundlessness of the demonstration, which the embassy in Warsaw wanted to organize on May 9th. This position was also conveyed in correspondence with the Warsaw City Hall, where concerns were expressed about the possibility of an incident, given the sensitivity of this topic in Polish society and for Ukrainians in Poland.

“The Polish side warned about the possibility of such incidents in the form of a reaction to the war crimes of the Russian Federation in Ukraine,” the head of Polish diplomacy stated.

At the same time, Rau noted that, despite this incident, the Polish Foreign Ministry is on the position that the diplomats of another country should be under protection.

On May 9, Ukrainian activists doused Russian Ambassador to Poland Sergei Andreev with a red liquid while trying to lay a wreath at the monument to Soviet soldiers in Warsaw, the agency reported. Hundreds of Ukrainians blocked the Russian embassy’s approach to the monument, shouting “fascists”. Russian diplomats were never able to lay flowers and were forced to leave this place under police protection.
