Russian Ambassador Denies Being Summoned by Warsaw to Explain World War II Comment

The Russian ambassador to Warsaw, Sergei Andreyev, has not been summoned by the Polish Foreign Ministry, a Russian Foreign Ministry official said Tuesday.

A Polish government source said earlier on Tuesday that Andreyev had been summoned over a spat regarding the 70th anniversary of the end of the World War II.

"Our embassy in Warsaw denies that," a Russian foreign ministry official said.

Russia's Itar-Tass news agency also reported from Warsaw that the Russian ambassador had not been summoned.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
