Poland is considering the possibility of imposing sanctions against Russia in connection with the poisoning of former spy Sergrei Skripal, Gazeta Prawna reports citing its sources.

In addition to the expulsion, Poland might impose other sanctions aimed against Russian business and Vladimir Putin's entourage.

Discussion of the introduction of sanctions started last week, but the decision is being postponed until the results of the Russian elections are announced.

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has reportedly spoken on the subject with his British counterpart Theresa May.

The decision on sanctions will also depend on today's meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels.

From the point of view of the Polish government, the best scenario is joint action against Russia at the EU level.

However, Poland is ready to react and impose Russia sanctions on its own.
