Russia Blasts Poland’s Refusal Of Minister Lavrov Attending Meeting

Russia on Saturday blasted Poland’s refusal to allow Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to attend a meeting next month of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe.

The Russian foreign ministry said; “The decision from Poland, which is the acting chairman of the OSCE, to refuse the participation of the Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov in the OSCE’s ministerial meeting in Lodz on December 1-2 is unprecedented and provocative.

“Not only did Poland discredit itself, it also caused irreparable damage to the credibility of the organization as a whole.”

Poland had said on Friday that it would not let Lavrov, under European sanctions, in the country for the meeting.

The Russian ministry charged that the security body was turning into “a platform for political show and anti-Russian exercises.”

“We are convinced that all sensible politicians share the position of the Russian side regarding the inadmissibility of such actions,” it said.

The Russian delegation will instead be led by Russia’s permanent representative to the OSCE Alexander Lukashevich.
