The victory of the nationalist Law and Justice party in Poland will complicate the country's relations with the European Union, the chairman of Russia’s upper house Committee for Foreign Affairs said Monday.

Opposition Party Wins Poland Parliamentary Elections - Exit-Poll
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Sunday, Poles voted in the country's parliamentary election.

The eurosceptic Law and Justice party, led by former Polish Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski, is said to have won the elections, with almost 38 percent of the vote and a projected 232 seats in the 460-member lower chamber, according to exit poll data from the pollster IPSOS.

According to Konstantin Kosachev, it is well-known that the party has long held anti-Russian positions, which is why he does not expect any fundamental changes in the two countries' bilateral relations.

"When it comes to relations with the European Union [on the refugee crisis] and Ukraine [on the restitution of Polish property in Ukraine], one can predict severe aggravation, at least at the initial stage of the Law and Justice’s time in power," Kosachev told RIA Novosti.

Poland’s Law and Justice has previously signaled its opposition to the relocation of refugees from the Middle East and North Africa within the European Union.

The party also supports NATO presence in Poland.

"A party that stands at clearly defined nationalist positions and, which traditionally explains all the issues the country is facing by external factors, came out victorious [in the elections] in Poland," Konstantin Kosachev said.
