WARSAW, November 2./TASS/. The Russian Embassy to Poland will look into the seizure of a recreation center it leased outside Warsaw by Polish authorities, Ambassador Sergey Andreyev told TASS on Wednesday.
"The embassy will look into it," the diplomat said. "The recreation center is mothballed and has not been used since the beginning of this year. There are no embassy staff there now," Andreyev added.
Polish authorities have seized the Skubianka recreation center near Warsaw, which has been rented by the Russian Embassy since the 1980s, Polish Deputy Minister of Climate and Environment Edward Siarka told a news conference on Wednesday.
"On Wednesday, employees of the State Forestry Office seized and took control of the property leased by the Russian Embassy in Warsaw in the Jablonna forestry outside Warsaw," he said.
According to Siarka, an inventory and technical assessment of the properties is now underway. "I hope that after this process is completed, new options for the use of this area will be proposed," he added.
