Zelensky accuses again: a Russian missile hit Poland

After denying his country once again hitting Polish lands, accusing Moscow of that, the Ukrainian president confirmed Volodymyr Zelensky The missile that fell in Poland and killed two people was a Russian one.

Zelensky said in televised remarks today, Wednesday, “I have no doubt that it is not our missile… I think it was a Russian missile, based on our military reports.”

Zelensky had accused Moscow of striking a farm in Poland yesterday, Tuesday, considering that this behavior was a clear message to the G20, “according to what France Press reported.”

On the other hand, a spokeswoman for US national security said that it is clear that the party responsible for the incident is Russia, “whatever the outcome of the final conclusions.”

The White House stated that Russia is ultimately responsible for the missile, noting at the same time that nothing contradicts the hypothesis that the missile that hit Poland was fired from Ukrainian defenses.

“Ukrainian missile”

And Polish President Andrzej Duda announced earlier today that it was “very likely” that the Ukrainian defenses were the source of the missile that landed in Pshevodov, describing the explosion as unfortunate.

While the Russian Ministry of Defense announced that the wreckage of the missile revealed that it belonged to the S300 anti-missile defense system of Ukraine.

In turn, France warned against rushing to conclusions about the source of the missile, considering that determining its type does not necessarily mean determining who fired it, especially since several countries have the same type.

Also, US President Joe Biden made it clear earlier that the preliminary information does not indicate that he was fired by Russia.

“Provocation with the aim of escalation”

While Moscow, of course, denied targeting Polish lands, considering these allegations and accusations a “provocation with the aim of escalation.”

It is noteworthy that Moscow’s responsibility for this bombing could lead to the activation of NATO’s collective defense principle known as Article 5, according to which an attack on a member of the coalition is considered an attack on all, and thus may unleash the start of consultations about a possible military response.
