All graduates of the Moscow State Institute of International Relations have been fired from Poland’s Foreign Ministry, Polish FM Zbigniew Rau told newspaper Gazeta Polska on Feb. 14.

Rau argues that the Moscow State Institute of International Relations was an instrument in promoting of Russian imperialism.
