The Polish Foreign Minister accused Russia of plotting to destabilize Europe ahead of the upcoming European elections.

Radoslaw Sikorski, who is the Foreign Minister of Poland, said in Lodz on Saturday that “Russia wanted to destabilize the situation in European ahead of the upcoming elections to the European Parliament. They want to influence the outcome of these elections.”

“We cannot allow them to do it,” he said, and added that “there were sabotage groups in Europe inspired and paid for by the Russian services.”

The news comes days after Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk announced on Tuesday the re-establishment of a commission to look into undue Russian influence.

In the past, Poland has said its position as a key distributor of supplies to Ukraine makes it a target for Moscow spies.
