MOSCOW, October 29. /TASS/. Russia is ready for the active work with the new leadership of Poland if there is mutual respect, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokesperson said on Thursday.

"We are ready for joint work with the new leadership of Poland with the goal of steady development of the Russian-Polish relations. Of course, this is on condition of readiness of the Polish partners and based on mutual respect for national state interests," Maria Zakharova said.

The Law and Justice party of the famous Polish politician Jaroslaw Kaczynski won the October 25 parliamentary elections in Poland. The party will have 235 out of 460 seats in the Sejm, the lower house of parliament.

"This allows the party to form the government of the country independently and it is expected that it will be led by Beata Szydlo, the deputy chair of the party," she said.

Poland ignoring Moscow’s calls to stop ‘war on monuments’

Zakharova also pointed out that Poland’s authorities continue ignoring Moscow’s calls to stop the "war on monuments." 

"Unfortunately, we have to again say that the Polish leadership continues ignoring Russia’s calls to stop the "war on monuments" that has been launched," Maria Zakharova told reporters.

The diplomat mentioned the dismantlement of the statue of Soviet General Ivan Chernyakhovsky in the Polish city of Pieniezno last month.

"Our principal position in this regard and on this issue remains unchanged," Zakharova said.

Moscow insists that Poland should abide by the 1994 Russian-Polish agreement on burial grounds and memorial places commemorating victims of wars and repression.

Russia stresses that the agreement is applicable to military cemeteries and separate monuments, a fact that Poland denies.

The diplomat also expressed gratitude for Poland’s organizations that protect the Soviet monuments.
