Polish police raid Russian embassy-run school – RIA

Officers have entered a school operated by the Russian embassy in Warsaw, a report says

Police and city officials have forcibly entered a school run by the Russian embassy in Warsaw on Saturday, RIA Novosti has reported. The news agency said Russian officials were ordered to open the door, but refused to comply.

Videos from the scene show a man in plain clothes opening the front gate with a crowbar, allowing uniformed officers to enter the school premises.

According to RIA, Polish officials then locked the gate in order to “prevent the removal of property” from the building.

The authorities told school staff to vacate the building by 6pm local time, RIA Novosti said.

Last year, Poland froze the accounts of the Russian embassy in response to Moscow’s military operation in Ukraine. Ambassador Sergey Andreyev said on Wednesday that prosecutors seized the bank accounts of the embassy and Russia’s trade mission. He blasted the move as “a flagrant violation” of the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
