WARSAW, November 14. (ITAR-TASS). Prime Minister Donald Tusk called for settling incidents at the embassies in Warsaw and Moscow as soon as possible.
The Polish premier said there was no need to heighten the conflict.
“It is necessary to close this topic as soon as possible because neither Poland nor Russia should search for reasons to drag on the conflict and escalate tension. This is beyond the interests of both countries,” Tusk told a news conference on Thursday.
The incident at the Russian Embassy in Warsaw “involved more people than at the Polish Embassy in Moscow”, the premier said.
“This year police’s tactics is more effective. Policemen took aside protesters and tried not to irritate them”, the premier said.
On November 11, on Poland’s Independence Day, a group of young people threw flares at the RF embassy in Warsaw. They set ablaze a guard booth at the embassy building. On November 13, a group of activists of the Other Russia party unfolded at the Polish embassy in Moscow a banner that read “Russia from Warsaw to Port Arthur!” They also threw flares and smoke bombs at the embassy.
November 13 activists of "Another Russia" political party" bombarded Poland's diplomatic mission in Moscow with flares and smoke canisters. Moreover, they've unfurled a banner saying "Russia spans from Warsaw to Port-Arthur."
The incident at the Polish embassy in Moscow cannot be compared with the riots at the Russian embassy in Warsaw, Russia's Foreign Ministry stated on Thursday.
“As for the incident at the Polish embassy in Moscow, in any case it cannot be compared with what has happened at our diplomatic mission in Warsaw - in terms of either the scale and causes of the incident, not to mention the damage inflicted on the embassy building,” the ministry noted.
On November 11, the participants of the nationalist March of Independence hurled flayers, bottles and smoke-puff charges at the Russian Embassy in Warsaw. The participants in the demonstration set an empty security guard booth on fire at the fence of the embassy, some nationalists tried to get over the fence of the embassy. The nearby building of the Russian trade mission and the Russian centre of science and culture, which also came under the shower of burning objects, were damaged.
The Polish Foreign Ministry condemned the actions of the participants in the march. “There cannot be any justification to hooliganism. We denounce the violation of the Vienna Convention,” spokesman of the Polish Foreign Ministry Marcin Wojciechowski said on Monday.
