Warsaw denies being behind Polish militants that attacked Belgorod
A top military official says that the Polish militants fighting in Ukraine "should not be identified with the authorities of Poland."
Poland denies that the Polish militants that were recorded taking part in a deadly attack within Russian territory are associated with the government, said a spokesperson for the Polish Minister Coordinator of Special Services.
The "Polish Volunteer Corps" announced on Sunday that it took part in an attack led by Ukrainian forces into western Russian villages in the border region of Belgorod in May
"The Polish Volunteer Corps described in the media is in no way associated with the Polish Armed Forces or any Polish institution. The activities of Polish volunteers supporting Ukraine in the fight against Russia should not be identified with the authorities of Poland," Stanislaw Zaryn posted on social media.
