Following the example of the British authorities, Polish government is ready to expel Russian diplomats under the reason of poisoning Russian former GRU colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, UK, head of the Chancellery of the Polish Prime Minister Michał Dworczyk has said on air of Zet radio.
“We know that Great Britain expelled Russian diplomats, so such sanctions can be taken into account. We also speak about economic sanctions and some other initiatives,” Dworczyk announced. He added that in the near future at least some of EU and NATO members will decide on their response to what happened in the UK.
As EADaily reported earlier, former Russian secret service colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned in Salisbury, UK, in early March. The UK announced that Moscow was involved in the case and took a series of anti-Russian measures. On March 14, Prime Minister Theresa May said that 23 Russian diplomats would be expelled. As a response, Russia declared 23 British diplomats personas non grata.
Russian President Vladimir Putin called the London statements “a bunch of nonsense.”
