WARSAW, October 24. /TASS/. The Polish Foreign Ministry has revoked the accreditation from a Russian state-run news agency's journalist working in Warsaw, a ministry spokesman said on Friday.
The spokesman refused to elaborate whether the withdrawal of the accreditation of Leonid Sviridov, a correspondent of the Rossiya Segodnya news agency (formerly known as RIA Novosti), was linked to the recent spy scandal in Poland.
On October 15, a high-ranking Polish officer and a lawyer holding Russian-Polish citizenship were detained on charges of spying for a foreign nation.
Marek Biernacki, a member of the parliamentary intelligence committee, said that the detainees were Russia's agents.
Polish Deputy Prime Minister Janusz Piechocinski said last week that Poland could deport Russian diplomats following the scandal.
