MOSCOW, July 4. /TASS/. Russia’s response measures on restricting movement between the Kaliningrad Region and Poland for the time of the NATO summit will remain in force until Warsaw restores local border traffic regime, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
"These restrictions, as reported, are introduced on security concerns in connection with the NATO summit in Warsaw (July 8-9) and International Youth Days in Krakow (July 26-31)," the foreign ministry said.
"Russia was made aware of this unilateral decision without preliminary consultations. Moreover, the connection is not clear between ensuring security at events in Warsaw and Krakow and implementation of the agreement which applies exclusively to border areas of Pomerania and Warmia-Masuria Voivodeships," the ministry noted.
"Proceeding from the principle of reciprocity, the Russian side took response measures in regard to Polish citizens intending to visit the Kaliningrad Region. They will remain in force until Warsaw restores the previous regime of movement in accordance with the agreement," the foreign ministry said.
"We note Warsaw’s assurances that the imposed restrictions are temporary, but we will see how it is fulfilled in practice," the ministry noted.
The NATO summit in Warsaw will take place on July 8-9.
