WARSAW, September 27 /TASS/. Polish police have detained two Russians for launching an unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) outside a government building and by the Belweder Palace in central Warsaw, Mihal Dzikansky, the press officer for the Regional Prosecutor’s Office of Warsaw told TASS on Tuesday.
"Two people have been detained," Dziekanski said, explaining that the arrests had not been simultaneous.
Dziekanski said the security services were investigating the case. "Formally, the Regional Prosecutor’s Office of Warsaw is in charge of such cases, but all the legal proceedings have been turned over to the Internal Security Agency," he added giving no further details.
The Russian embassy in Poland is following the events.
Government guards noticed the drone early on September 26 and quickly established who was guiding it.
"A man was sitting in a Porsche Cayenne on Bagatela Street, and the vehicle had a Russian license plate. The individual presented Russian identification papers to the police," Polish TVN24 quoted an anonymous source as saying on Monday.
"The Warsaw police confirmed the detention of the foreign citizen. An investigation is under way. For now, we can say that air regulations were violated," Warsaw police Spokesman Mariusz Mrozek said adding the Polish air code prohibits unauthorized drone flights in downtown Warsaw.
Under Polish laws, the offenders may face up to five years behind bars.
