The parliamentarians have met with Executive Director of the Centre for Eastern Studies Adam Eberhardt, Head of the Foreign Intelligence Agency Grzegorz Małecki, and Director of the Military Intelligence Service Andrzej Kowalski.

"We were interested in the analysis of the situation in Russia. We also received information on the actions of Russian special services as to the main events for Poland - NATO Summit in Warsaw, World Youth Day in Kraków, and the developments in Ukraine, Syria and the Middle East," Opioła said. He added the situation is under constant control of Poland intelligence.

"We know the Russian secret service uses tested mechanisms and models in E.U. states and in other countries neighbouring with Poland," the Chairman of the Commission for Special Services said.

He also said these actions are aimed at discrediting both the NATO Summit and Poland itself.

According to Opioła, another sphere of interest for the Russian intelligence is the construction of U.S. ballistic missile defence systems in Poland and NATO military exercises.
