The journalists found out that sanctions were supposed to be introduced last week, but decided to wait for the results of the presidential election first. The head of the Polish government, Mateusz Moravetski, has already held talks on this topic with British Prime Minister Theresa May. At the moment, Warsaw insists on sanctions against Russia at the level of the European Union, but is also ready for independent action.

The former colonel of the Russian GRU, Sergei Skripal, was poisoned in Britain last week. Without an investigation, London has formerly accused Russia.
