    WARSAW (Sputnik) – Polish Sen. Maciej Grubski representing the Civil Platform party got his party membership suspended over his remarks about Russian President Vladimir Putin made in an interview with Sputnik news agency, a party official stated.

    "Grubski’s party membership was suspended," Sen. Lukas Abgarovic, who is responsible for the party discipline, told reporters.

    He pointed out that Grubski’s remarks had not reflected the position of Civil Platform.

    "That is an expression of the point of view, which is harmful for the state interests," Abgarovic noted.
