MOSCOW, April 29. /TASS/. The Kremlin regrets about an unfriendly stance taken by the Polish authorities on the correspondent of the Russia Today international news agency in Warsaw, the presidential press secretary, Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.
"To express regret is the only thing we could possibly do (in the situation as it is)," he said. "It’s a pity Poland is restricting the operations of foreign mass media."
"This runs counter to international standards," Peskov indicated. "As a rule, the international practice for such situations is to react in the spirit of reciprocity."
Earlier, the Polish authorities passed a decision to revoke the residential permit of the correspondent for the Russia Today news agency, Leonid Sviridov.
The reporter told TASS on Wednesday he expected the decision to be taken on May 20, after which he would be notified by mail, but it was taken urgently however.
"The regional governor’s administrative decision was handed personally to my lawyer," Sviridov said. He did not rule out this hurry might be linked to a recent denial of entry of the Polish territory for members of the Russian biking club ‘The Night Wolves’.
Sviridov is going to file a legal complaint against the decision.
Polish Foreign Ministry annulled his media accreditation at the end of last year. It turned out later that by doing this the ministry answered a request from Poland’s Agencja Bezpieczenstwa Wewnetrznego (ABW) internal security agency.
