Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski is asking for PLN 30,753 from the Ministry of Finance in order to pay damages to the Russian Embassy for losses caused by violence on Independence Day, the minister wrote on his Twitter account on Friday.

The Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Marcin Wojciechowski told the Polish Press Agency that the money will come from a reserve in the 2014 state budget. The Finance Ministry will have to ask for government approval to spend it.

The Embassy of the Russian Federation in Warsaw said that its damages amounted to over $10,000. On Nov 11 last year, a group of nationalists taking part in the Independence March threw stones and flares at the embassy area, causing damage to the gate, entry phone and three cars.
