On Tuesday, initial reports from The Associated Press claimed that a Russian missile had crossed over into Poland, killing two Polish citizens. Now it appears that the missile may have been Ukrainian in origin.
From The Daily Wire:
The Associated Press first reported the missile strike Tuesday morning after a senior U.S. official told the publication that Russia fired the missiles.
“There is preliminary information that contests that,” Biden later told reporters while overseas when asked if the missile had been fired from Russia. “It is unlikely in the lines of the trajectory that it was fired from Russia, but we’ll see.”
Now it appears as though the missile, which Poland said was “Russian-made”, was actually fired by Ukrainian forces at a Russian missile, missed, and continued traveling through the air until in detonated at the farm, preliminary assessments suggested according to the AP.
The Russian government immediately pushed back on claims that they had fired the missile as soon as the AP’s report was published.
“No strikes on targets near the Ukrainian-Polish state border were made by Russian means of destruction,” Russia’s Defense Ministry said. The ministry called the reports “deliberate provocation(s) aimed at escalating the situation.”
“I’m going to make sure we find out exactly what happened,” Biden said. “And then we’re going to collectively determine our next step as we investigate.”
