WARSAW, August 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Poland’s Foreign Ministry on Wednesday dismissed allegations that mercenaries from that country are fighting in east Ukraine.

“The Polish Foreign Ministry dissociates itself from mass media speculation about alleged involvement of Polish mercenaries in the conflict in eastern Ukraine. The information available to us disproves these suspicions,” ministry spokesman Marcin Wojciechowski said.

Under Polish laws, “anyone serving in foreign military units without the consent of the authorities commits an offense punishable by imprisonment of up to five years”, he said.

“If Polish citizens undertook such actions, they should be prepared to face legal consequences in Poland,” Wojciechowski said, adding “Such allegations can indicate that they are used as an element of information warfare”.
