MOSCOW, January 20. /TASS/. Russia condemns the acts of vandalism against the Soviet military burials in Poland and will not accept the historical claims and ultimatums of Warsaw, the first deputy Russian foreign minister said ahead of the Russian-Polish consultations at the level of deputy foreign ministers on January 22.
"It is important for us to emphasize that the unfriendly position of Warsaw on many international and bilateral issues, including the growing cases of acts of vandalism against our monuments and military burials, is unacceptable," Titov said.
The diplomat also warned Poland against "making historical claims and ultimatums" when holding dialogue with Russia. "If the consultations are set to show activity on promoting the destructive agenda then we will make the respective conclusions."
Russia is prepared to hold a dialogue with Poland on improving bilateral relations, First Deputy Russian Foreign Minister Vladimir Titov told TASS on Wednesday.
On January 22, Moscow will host the Russian-Polish consultations at the level of deputy foreign ministers.
"This is the initiative of the Polish side. Warsaw has sent signals that the country’s new leadership that came to power after the October 25, 2015 parliamentary elections would like to bring some fresh ideas to the Russian-Polish relations," Titov said. "If this is indeed so, then of course we are ready to listen to these ideas."
However, the consultations will come amid Poland’s unfriendly position in the context of the Ukrainian crisis, mass desecration of Soviet military cemeteries and demands to strengthen NATO’s eastern flank.
