Polish authorities accused a Russian journalist working for a pro-Kremlin news agency of posing a threat to Poland's security, saying Wednesday that he should be deported.Warsaw regional authorities declared Wednesday that they agreed with the security agency's assessment of Sviridov and that he should be stripped of his right to remain in Poland.However, Polish authorities have never specified what suspicions or evidence they might have, keeping all details of the case top secret. Sviridov himself has told The Associated Press he believes he is suspected of espionage, in part because he was first named as a danger to Poland at a time last autumn when others suspects of spying for Russia were arrested or forced to leave Poland.Sviridov insists, however, that this is not espionage and that there is nothing wrong with it.
