Polish foreign ministry spokesman Łukasz Jasina told the media that the Polish diplomats were given until April 13 to leave Russia.

Earlier in the day, the Polish ambassador to Moscow, Krzysztof Krajewski, was summoned to the Russian foreign ministry and told about the move, public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported.

Poland last month expelled 45 Russian diplomats suspected of being intelligence operatives, according to an announcement at the time.
