NATO Chief: Poland Explosion Likely Ukrainian Air Defense Missile

BALI, INDONESIA — NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday an explosion in eastern Poland near the Ukrainian border was “likely caused by a Ukrainian air defense missile fired to defend Ukrainian territory against Russian cruise missile attacks.”

Speaking to reporters in Brussels after a meeting of the North Atlantic Council, Stoltenberg said all NATO allies agreed with the assessment, which was based on preliminary analysis, and that an investigation was ongoing.

“But let me be clear: this is not Ukraine’s fault,” Stoltenberg said. “Russia bears ultimate responsibility as it continues its illegal war against Ukraine.”

The NATO chief said the best way to prevent a similar incident in the future is for Russia to stop its fighting in Ukraine.
