    MFA Undersecretary of State Andrzej Papierz met today with German Ambassador Rolf Nikel in connection with the issue of an LTV visa to Ms Lyudmyla Kozlovska by the Federal Republic of Germany.

    The Polish side stands by its decision to enter an alert in the Schengen Information System (SIS) on Lyudmyla Kozlovska, a Ukrainian national, for being an undesirable person.


    The decision to enter an alert on Ms Kozlovska in the SIS was based on information collected by the Internal Security Agency. This information leaves no doubt that the sources of financing of the Open Dialogue Foundation are not transparent. The Polish services also received relevant intelligence from their partner services.


    The head of the Internal Security Agency informed in detail the German special and police agencies’ liaison officers about the grounds for entering Ms Lyudmyla Kozlovska in the SIS. The Internal Security Agency will inform its partner agencies in all the Schengen countries about the case.


    Deputy Minister Andrzej Papierz told the German Ambassador that the Polish side believes there were no grounds for issuing a short-term LTV visa to Ms Lyudmyla Kozlovska.


    The ban on entering the territory of Poland and the European Union imposed on Ms Lyudmyla Kozlovska is in force. She is still entered in the SIS.
