Poland arrests suspects who may have planned sabotage in Latvia

Polish police have arrested nine people suspected of plotting sabotage activities on behalf of Russia – including in Latvia and Lithuania – reports Polish public media PAP.

"[Polish Prime Minister] Donald Tusk confirmed to the private broadcaster TVN24 on Monday that some of the recent incidents in Poland, Lithuania and Latvia were acts of sabotage carried out on behalf of Russia," said PAP.

The report stated that an IKEA facility in Lithuania was among the targets of the suspected saboteurs, but the specific site or sites in Latvia were not named.

Those arrested include Polish, Ukrainian and Belarusian citizens with suspected links to the criminal underworld, Tusk said, adding that investigation efforts involved Poland and its allies.
