1 min read

          Russia’s ambassador in Warsaw claimed on Thursday that Poland had frozen the Russian embassy’s bank accounts because they may be used to support terrorist activity or launder money.

“Our accounts have been frozen by a decision of the finance ministry, and subsequently by a decision of the Polish prosecutor”, Ambassador Sergey Andreev said on Russia’s Channel 1 state television, according to TASS.

He stated that the decision was made because “funds from our accounts might allegedly be utilised for laundering of unlawfully obtained money or supporting terrorists”. According to Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, the Russian Federation’s money has been blocked. Relations between Russia and Central European nations that were previously within its sphere of influence have long been strained, but the Ukraine war has elevated fear and distrust of Moscow’s intentions dramatically.
