Poland: “Unfortunate” attack on Russian ambassador in Warsaw

In response to the fact that the Russian ambassador in Warsaw was sprayed with a red substance on Monday by pro-Ukrainian activists when he tried to lay a wreath to celebrate Victory Day on May 9 to commemorate the defeat of Nazi Germany in the World War II, Poland described what happened as “unfortunate”.

The Polish Interior Ministry also revealed that it had asked the Russian ambassador not to participate in the victory celebrations in Warsaw.

Unidentified people attacked the Russian ambassador in Poland, today, and a video clip released on social media showed the moment of the attack as the ambassador placed flowers on the grave of Soviet soldiers in the capital Warsaw.

The clip showed the Russian ambassador, Sergey Andreev, in standing next to the soldiers’ graves, while unidentified people threw red paint at him, according to the Russian agency “Sputnik”.

Despite the attack, the Russian ambassador continued to stand in front of the shrine, as Polish police did not provide the necessary protection to the Russian diplomatic delegation in the region, according to Moscow.

Furthermore, in following the attack, the Polish police opened a safe corridor for him to exit the area.

“Bloody Face of Nazism”

In turn, Russia accused the Polish authorities of complicity with the demonstrators in the attack on its ambassador.

“The attack on the Russian ambassador in Warsaw once again reveals the bloody face of the neo-Nazis,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.

Poland has welcomed hundreds of thousands of refugees from neighboring Ukraine since Moscow sent troops into the country on February 24.
