“Unilateral activity” of Moscow creates difficulties for political dialogue between Poland and Russia. This is stated in the statement of the Polish foreign Ministry about the expulsion of the aggressor state of the Polish historian Henryk Hlembotski.
The statement reported that on Monday, November 27, the Ambassador of Russia in Warsaw Wlodzimierz Marciniak gave the Russian foreign Ministry a note of protest against the expulsion of the scientist.
“We are concerned about the incomprehensible decision of the Russian side about the expulsion of the historian of the Jagiellonian University and a fellow of the Institute of national memory of Professor Henryk Hlembotski, who was in Moscow to research the trip”, – declared in Polish the Ministry.
In Warsaw noted that the scientific activity of Hlembotski aimed at the normalization of Polish-Russian relations.
“Unjustified expulsion of the Polish scientist – another link in the anti-Polish propaganda campaign by the Russian side for several months, and another proof that the political dialogue between our countries is facing difficulties because of the unilateral activity of the Russian side”, – said the Minister.

The foreign Ministry of Poland are convinced that the preservation of freedom of contact and ensuring a smooth dialogue between Polish and Russian historians, scientists and cultures have “special meaning, which we must protect, not administrative limit”.
Earlier in November 2017, the FSB of Russia have detained in Moscow the Polish historian Heinrich Hlembotski and expelled him from Russia.
The Minister of defence of Poland, Anthony Macierewicz called the expulsion of a Russian scientist “hostile act” against historians showing than really was the Soviet totalitarian system.
