War in Ukraine has significantly increased fear and suspicion in European Union and Western countries about Moscow’s intentions.

Poland has decided to expel diplomats suspected of being Russian Intelligence Service agents from its territory. According to Polish Foreign Ministry spokesman Lukasz Jasina.

“Russia is our neighbor, it will not disappear from the map of Europe, but the aggression against Ukraine proves that it is a hostile state and even hostile to Poland,” Jasina said during the announcement on Wednesday, 23.

In an interview broadcast on Polish television today, government spokesman Michal Dworczyk stated that “the activities of Russian spies are becoming more and more intense” in Polish territory.

Poland has decided to expel “45 Russian spies posing as diplomats”, Polish Interior Minister Mariusz Kaminski announced on Wednesday (23).

“We have consistently and decisively dismantled the network of Russian special services in our country,” he tweeted.

Russian Ambassador to Poland Sergei Andreev confirmed the expulsions and said people would leave the country within five days.

He said the spying allegations, presented in diplomatic language as “activities not compatible with his diplomatic status”, “have no foundation” and announced that Russia reserves the right to take reciprocal measures.

Relations between the two countries continue, said the diplomat. “Embassies remain, ambassadors remain”, he reiterated.
