Poland considers it necessary to leave its ambassador to Russia, Lukasz Jasina, spokesman for the Polish Foreign Ministry, said.
Earlier, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said that after the Polish authorities seized the school building at the embassy in Warsaw, Russia has the right to break off diplomatic relations with Poland, but this will primarily affect the Russians living and working there.
“This is always reasoning “for” and “against”. And for a year now this issue has been outweighed in the direction of having a Polish representation on the territory of the Russian Federation, since this is a matter of caring for our citizens, the issue of not closing communication channels. Most countries of the European Union also decided to leave their ambassadors in Moscow,” Yasina said, answering a question about the possible recall of the Polish ambassador from Russia.
He also stated that one of the missions of the Polish ambassador to Russia is to support the opposition. “It’s also a kind of symbol. Ambassador Krzysztof Krajewski does a lot of great things there, meeting at least with the Russian opposition and taking care of them,” the Foreign Ministry spokesman said.
