The missiles that hit Poland on Tuesday were an attempt by the West to move towards another world war. This was conveyed today by former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev quoted by Reuters news agency. The head of Russia’s permanent mission to the UN, Dmitry Polyansky, expressed the same opinion, which he said was an attempt to provoke a direct clash between Russia and NATO.
“This is an attempt to provoke a direct military clash between NATO and Russia with all the consequences for the world,” Polyansky wrote on the Telegram social network.
Polish President Andrzej Duda said earlier that the authorities did not yet know for certain who launched the missile.
A missile hit the village of Przewodów about six kilometers from the Ukrainian border on Tuesday, killing two people. Three unnamed US officials told the Associated Press that initial findings indicated that the Ukrainian armed forces fired the missile in an attempt to intercept an incoming Russian missile.
