The State Duma has proposed to ban cargo carriers from Poland from crossing the territory of the Russian Federation, reports Izvestia. This proposal was made by the head of the State Duma Committee on transport and transport infrastructure development Yevgeny Moskvichev.
The MP believes that such a ban could be introduced in response to the seizure by Polish authorities of a school at the Russian Embassy in Warsaw on April 29. Moskvichev submitted a corresponding proposal to the government.
“Let them come to the border of the Russian Federation to the nearest customs terminal and unload the cargo or attach it to our trucks,” the MP said.
The head of the Duma committee said that he had already discussed his proposal with representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Transport and the machinery of government, and that they supported him. He also proposed to increase the cost of diesel fuel for Polish trucks by 1.5-2 times when refueling at gas stations in Russia.
The Polish authorities, together with the police, broke into the building of a secondary school at the Russian Embassy, after which its employees left the building and moved to another establishment of the Russian diplomatic mission in Warsaw . After that, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, noted that Russia has the right to break diplomatic relations with Poland.
Russian Ambassador to Warsaw Sergei Andreev also did not rule out a break in diplomatic relations between the countries and admitted that Moscow may reflect the withdrawal of its buildings.
