MOSCOW, December 17 (Itar-Tass) — Russia prepares additional materials on the events in Katyn to hand them over to the Polish colleagues, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
After the talks with his Polish counterpart Radoslaw Sikorski on Monday, Lavrov said, “These will be several volumes. The issue is very serious and it includes legal actions, which should be taken in compliance with our law. That is why the documents are being prepared to be handed over.”
The tragic events in Katyn complicated relations between Russia and Poland. In 2010 the Russian authorities made public copies of secret documents and gave Poland case records. However, the parties take different positions on the events in Katyn.
