Authorities reportedly gave staff members until 6 p.m. local time to vacate the premises.
Police and city officials broke into a school run by the Russian Embassy in Warsaw on Saturday, RIA Novosti reported. The news agency said Russian officials were ordered to open the gate, but refused to comply.
Videos from the scene show a man in civilian clothes opening the front door with a crowbar, allowing uniformed officers to enter the school premises.
According to RIA, Polish officials then locked the door in order to “prevent the movement of goods” of the building.
Poland used false accusations to seize Russian funds – ambassador
Authorities have asked school staff to leave the building by 6 p.m. 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 Wednesday that prosecutors had seized the bank accounts of the embassy and the Russian trade mission. He blasted the move as “a flagrant violation” of the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
