Not that @RT_com reporters are intelligence assets, except when they are. Citing Poland's security service to the effect that Leonid Sviridov represented a threat to national security, the poor man's press accreditation was pulled, leaving him without a reason to be residing in Poland, thus his residency permit was also withdrawn.

Russia, for its part, complains.

#RussiaComplains Poland is another country that fails to treat journalists properly. https://t.co/1NczxxCO8O

"Меня выдворяют из страны без суда и следствия, это факт” Expelled w/out trial?! The horror. https://t.co/ssamRrxfzM

If RT reporter is genuine threat to Poland security, why is he still alive?! No respect for journalists. https://t.co/AO9No1wHA9

@webradius @jdwynnyckyj @20committee Yep. "Sviridov's problems with the Polish authorities began in October 2014"... https://t.co/mwjFUUFzoC
