Almost entire membership of the diplomats at the senior positions in the Foreign Ministry of Poland was changed. Persons who cooperated with the communist secret services or who were the graduates of Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) were dismissed. Jacek Czaputowicz, the Foreign Minister of Poland claimed this as Interia.pl reported.
“It is possible to say that the senior staff of the ministry was changed for 100%. There are no people who were on the lists of the workers of the communist secret services or were the graduates of Moscow MGIMO at the senior positions in the Foreign Ministry or abroad,” Czaputowicz claimed.
He reminded that since November 2015, when Law and Justice Party came to power, 86 ambassadors out of 101 were changed or will be changed in the nearest future and 28 of them were changed since February 2018 when Czaputowicz became the minister.
