The government of Poland intend to confiscate Russian property and assets in the republic, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said in an interview Sunday.

According to the Prime Minister, Polish authorities plan to have a meeting with the opposition Monday, during which they will "raise a question on how to freeze and confiscate Russian property in the country."

"We have a bit of such property. On the one hand, there are constitutional restrictions for such actions, connected to the right of property; on the other hand, more and more Polish people fail to understand why we can’t have such action in our country, if the Italians confiscate yachts of Russian oligarchs," Morawiecki said.

"We want to take it thought the Sejm [the lower house of the parliament], and we decided that the opposition must be involved in this process," he explained.

He underscored that, although there are no Russian yachts in Poland, "there is some real estate and financial assets, shares of companies."

"In any case, our authority camp firmly supports this," the Prime Minister said, Russian TASS reports.
