MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Monday, Polish President Andrzej Duda signed a law regulating the demolition of monuments and renaming of objects associated with the Communist legacy and propaganda, or any other "totalitarian regime."
"Russia could raise the issue of inadmissibility of reviewing the results of World War II, which is expressed in the demolition of Soviet soldiers monuments in Poland, in the UN Security Council," Dzhabarov said.
The lawmaker added that Russia could also introduce sanctions against the lawmakers that participated in the elaboration of the bill, as well as economic sanctions, including halting regional border cooperation with Poland.
According to Poland's Institute of National Remembrance, the law will apply to 230 monuments commemorating the soldiers of the Soviet Red Army, among many others. The new law though only targets the monuments intended for public viewing, therefore leaving some monuments exempt from removal. For example, monuments located in cemeteries will remain untouched.
