"The Polish authorities, undoubtedly, understand very well that this is a harsh insult on the Russian people and peoples of the countries which were former parts of the Soviet Union, whose sons and daughters fought against a common enemy for the life and freedom of the European nations, including the Poles. Despite this, Warsaw intentionally makes this outrageous provocation. Of course, it will not be left without response," the ministry said in a statement.
The new Polish law violates the existing bilateral agreements between Moscow and Warsaw, the Russian Foreign Ministry noted.
On June 22, Poland’s lower house of parliament passed amendments to the so-called de-communization law, stipulating the demolition of almost 500 Soviet-era monuments in the country.
The law enters into force three months after being signed.
