"I have just announced the Polish decision in connection with the participation of the Russian state in the hybrid war against the EU, including Poland," Sikorski told reporters after a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels.

"These will be restrictions on the movement of Russian diplomats in our country," he added.

Sikorski stated that Poland has evidence that Russia is "authorizing diversion in Europe."

The Russian embassy in Poland will soon receive an official note regarding these new restrictions, Sikorski also said.

The limitations will apply to embassy and consular staff, but not to the ambassador, public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported.
