A missile landed in Poland near its border with Ukraine last night, killing two people. It was initially unclear if the strike was an accidental or deliberate attack by Russia. According to Polish President Andrzej Duda, “Ukraine’s defense was launching their missiles in various directions, and it is highly probable that one of these missiles, unfortunately, fell on Polish territory,” said Polish President Andrzej Duda. “There is nothing, absolutely nothing, to suggest that it was an intentional attack on Poland,” he added.
National Security Council Spokesperson Adrienne Watson said today that the US has “full confidence” in the Polish government’s investigation. “We have seen nothing that contradicts President Duda’s preliminary assessment that this explosion was most likely the result of a Ukrainian air defense missile that unfortunately landed in Poland.”
President Bided said on Tuesday in Bali that it was “unlikely” by looking at the missile strike trajectory “that it was fired from Russia.”
NATO’s Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg further confirmed today that there is no indication that the explosion on Polish territory was intentional.
“An investigation is ongoing, and we need to await its outcome, but we have no indication that this was an assault or a deliberate attack,” Stoltenberg said. He added that there is “no evidence that Russia is preparing offensive military actions against NATO.”
President Zelenskyy stated that the missiles were not Ukrainian but Russian. “There are calculated consequences, and the enemy knew exactly what he was doing,” assuming the attack on Poland was not an accident.
When asked why there is such a discrepancy between President Duda’s and President Zelenskyy’s understanding of the attack, State Department Principle Spokesperson Patel said that while the US is aware of President Zelenskyy’s statement, they have complete confidence in the Polish government’s investigation.
