Russia Vows “Severe” Retaliation Following Poland’s Confiscation of Warsaw Building – POLITICO

Tensions have arisen between Poland and Russia after Polish authorities seized a building near Moscow’s embassy in Warsaw. The building in question is used as a high school for the children of diplomats and belongs to the Warsaw city hall. However, Russia has labeled the seizure as “illegal” and a violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. In response, Moscow has threatened a “harsh” reaction and consequences for Poland’s interests in Russia.

According to the Polish foreign ministry spokesman, Łukasz Jasina, the property belongs to the Polish state and was taken by Russia illegally. The move to seize the building was made on a bailiff’s order. Polish authorities maintain that the seizure was legal, while Russia has condemned the action as a hostile act.

The ongoing tensions between Poland and Russia have escalated in recent years over a number of issues, including political and military disputes. The situation is exacerbated by historical tensions arising from the countries’ rocky past. As Russia threatens to take action against Poland, the international community watches closely, hoping that a peaceful resolution can be reached.
