WARSAW, June 17 (Itar-Tass) - A suspicious-looking parcel found near the Russian consulate in Warsaw has turned out to be an envelope with old electricity bills, according Mariusz Mrozek, a spokesman for Warsaw police.
“This find poses no threat. No one was hurt,” he told Itar-Tass on Monday.
According to earlier reports, a suspicious-looking parcel was found near the Russian consulate in Warsaw on Monday. The parcel was spotted by a Polish policeman who was on duty in the area where the Russian embassy, its consular department, the Russian trade mission and the Center of Science and Culture are located. When the man tried to look what was inside, he felt sick. More policemen, fire fighters, medics and officers of sanitary and epidemiological services were summoned to the area.
Commenting on such excessive security measures, Mrozek said these are regular procedures when a wife parcel is found.
The incident hasn't interrupted the work of Russian missions, a source in the Russian consular department told Itar-Tass.
