A missile that landed in Poland and killed two people is “unlikely” to have been fired by Russia, US President Joe Biden has said.
The missile landed in Przewodow, 6km from Poland’s border with Ukraine.
The Polish Government described it as a “Russian-made” missile - a phrase that could be used to describe some of the weapons used by the Ukrainian Armed Forces as well.
Speaking in Indonesia where he is meeting other G20 leaders, President Biden said it does not seem likely to have been fired by Russian forces.
“There is preliminary information that contests that,” he said.
“I don’t want to say that until we completely investigate, but it is unlikely in the minds [sic] of its trajectory that it was fired from Russia.
“But we will see; we will see.”
'Not Ukraine's fault'
Meanwhile, the Russian Embassy in Dublin said that yesterday’s “destruction and deaths in Przewodów were caused by Ukrainian missiles”.
NATO’s Secretary General Jens Stoltenburg said there is no evidence that Russia is preparing to attack members of the military alliance.
"Let me be clear, this is not Ukraine's fault," he said.
"Russia bears ultimate responsibility as it continues its illegal war against Ukraine."
