Poland Says Ukraine Likely Launched Missiles That Killed 2, Not a Deliberate Attack

HeadlineNov 16, 2022

NATO representatives held an emergency meeting in Brussels today after two people were killed in a missile strike in Poland near the border with Ukraine Tuesday. Earlier today, Polish President Andrzej Duda said the weapon was likely fired by Ukrainians as part of its air defense — not by the Russians. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had initially blamed Russia for the missile strike. This is Polish President Duda.

President Andrzej Duda: “Nothing, absolutely nothing, indicates that this was an intentional attack on Poland. So, what happened is a rocket hit our territory. It was not intentional. It was not a missile targeted at Poland. The fact is this was not an attack on Poland.”
