Poland will deport two Russian women who were members of a pro-Russian "hybrid" group that sought to stoke tension with neighboring Ukraine, Polish security official said on Friday.

Poland arrested a Russian woman identified as "Yekaterina C" and barred four other people from entering the country, Poland's internal security agency, the ABW, said on Thursday.

On Friday, one of the of the four people who had been banned from entering Poland was identified as a "Russian-Cypriot citizen, "Anastazja Z.".

"Anastazja Z." was detained by Poland's Border Guard on Thursday afternoon, said Stanisław Żaryn, ABW spokesman on Friday.

ABW said both women will be expelled and banned from entering Poland due to their involvement in "Hybrid warfare", a non-military subversive tactics which includes spreading fake news to change public attitudes.

Żaryn accused the pro-Kremlin group of "fueling Polish-Ukrainian animosities in the social and political sphere and ... replacing Polish history with a Russian narrative".


Comment: The "Russian version of history" is the correct one, Poland has already 'revised' its history to a fake one.


Despite historic disputes with Ukraine, Poland has backed Kiev in its feud with Russia over the annexation of Crimea and supports Ukraine's ambition to join the European Union.

Żaryn said "Anastazja Z." was engaged in "historic propaganda" in order to disseminate "the Russian version of history".
