Mr Jasina said that the ministry will make public any further developments.

The incident follows Monday events in Warsaw when the Russian ambassador to Poland, Sergey Andreyev had red paint thrown at him by protesters as he tried to lay wreaths at a Soviet war memorial to mark the anniversary of the so-called Soviet Army’s victory over Nazi Germany in World War II, (May 9).

Deputy Foreign Minister Marcin Przydacz has said that Poland was awaiting explanations from Russia on the incident at the embassy.
