The Polish president admits: The attack came from the Ukrainians, but it was unintentional!

A disaster rather than a deliberate attack; this is how Polish President Andrzej Duda described Tuesday’s explosion in Poland that claimed the lives of two people.

Duda claimed that the two pieces of a missile that hit a border village in Poland belonged to Ukrainian air defenses, although he added that he believed ultimate responsibility rested with Russia, which on the same day had launched a series of missile attacks on the neighboring country.

“There is absolutely no evidence that this was a deliberate attack on Poland. It is very likely that it is a missile used for defense, which means that it was being used by the defense forces of Ukraine,” he said.

The Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, affirmed the same thing, who emphasized just in case that all this did not happen due to the fault of Ukraine.

The Polish Foreign Ministry clarified that the Russian-made missile had fallen in the village of Przewodow, in the east of the country. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that the government is still considering the possibility of activating Article 4 of NATO, but added that in the end, such a thing should not be necessary.

According to this article, member countries can raise concerns when they feel that their “territorial integrity, political independence or security” are at risk. Whereas, Article 5 of the NATO Treaty clearly defines that an attack on a member country of the military alliance is an attack on all.

Poland put its army on high alert after an emergency meeting held by its National Security Council, while the EU and NATO expressed full solidarity with it, while the idea of ​​supporting the country with an anti-aircraft system was also floated.
