It is “unlikely,” according to Vice President Joe Biden of the United States, that a missile that killed two people in Poland on Tuesday was shot from Russia.
The missile that fell in Przewodow, close to the Ukrainian border, was not fired by Russia, according to the country.
Poland claimed it was built in Russia, but according to US authorities, preliminary research suggests Ukrainian air defenses shot it.
According to Kiev, more than 90 Russian missiles were launched against Ukraine on Tuesday.
Some of the missiles struck Lviv, which is close to Ukraine’s western border with Poland, even though the military claimed 77 were shot down.
Two Polish laborers were killed in a blast at a farm building in Przewodow, 6 kilometers (4 miles) from the border, during the Russian attacks.
The military of NATO member Poland was put on high alert, and on Wednesday morning, an emergency conference of NATO ambassadors was scheduled to discuss their response.
President Biden informed reporters at the G20 summit in Bali that “preliminary intelligence” contradicted the first claims, which Russia had denounced as a “provocation.”
Western leaders at the Bali summit issued a declaration denouncing Russia’s “barbaric missile attacks” on the towns and civilian infrastructure of Ukraine and pledging their unwavering support for its neighbor Poland.
President Biden, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, French President Emmanuel Macron, and EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen were among those in attendance.
Andrzej Duda, the president of Poland, told reporters that the cause of the explosion remained unknown and that investigators were looking at all possibilities.
“At this time, we do not have any solid proof as to who fired this missile… Although everything is still being looked into, it was most likely a Russian-made missile, he said.
United Nations Secretary-General, António Guterres also said he was “very concerned” by the Poland explosion and called for a thorough investigation.
“It is absolutely essential to avoid escalating the war in Ukraine,” said his spokesman, Farhan Haq.
