Poland blocked the money of the Russian embassy

 Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs warns of "asymmetric reaction" to Poland freezing of the accounts of the Russian embassy in Warsaw.

According to Dorzeczy(.)pl, on March 2022, the accounts of the Polish embassy in Moscow were blocked and the funds on them were frozen. The Russians said it was in response to the actions of the Polish authorities.

According to press reports, the Warsaw prosecutor's office seized almost 800,000 PLN in Russia's bank accounts and over 912 thousand. dollars.

The Russian ambassador to Poland, Sergei Andreyev, did not react to the actions of the Polish authorities and did not protest in court, so the decision of the prosecutor's office finally entered into force on May 10.

Recently Warsaw authorities also took over the building at Kielecka Street, illegally occupied by the Russian embassy.
