Russia-Ukrain War, G20, Joe Biden: A missile believed to be Russian-made struck a village in eastern Poland yesterday, killing two people and raising fears of an escalation in the Ukraine conflict.

The Polish Foreign Ministry said the rocket landed in Przewodów, a village in eastern Poland about 6 kilometers from the border with Ukraine. Media reports said that the strike affected a grain drying facility.

Polish President Andrzej Duda said there was no clear evidence as to who fired the missile, adding that it was “most likely Russian-made”. “At the moment we do not have clear evidence as to who fired the missile,” he said.

The Polish Foreign Ministry previously said the missile was Russian-made and summoned Russia’s ambassador to Warsaw to provide an “urgent detailed explanation”.

Russia’s Defense Ministry has denied any role in the missile attack. It accused the Polish mass media and authorities of “deliberately inciting the situation to escalate”.

The missile attack prompted an emergency meeting at the ongoing G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia. The meeting, led by US President Joe Biden, was attended by major powers of the West, among others.

Apart from the US, the leaders of Germany, Canada, Netherlands, Japan, Spain, Italy, France and Britain participated in the meeting. All are members of NATO except Japan.

After the meeting, Biden said the US and its NATO allies are investigating the explosion in Poland, but early information suggests it may not have been caused by a missile fired from Russia, according to news agency Reuters.

Asked if it was too early to say the missile was fired from Russia, Biden said: “There is preliminary information that contradicts it. I don’t want to say that until we investigate it thoroughly.” , But that’s unlikely. The trajectory is that it was fired from Russia but we’ll see.”

Earlier, Warsaw put its military on high alert following an emergency meeting of the National Security Council. “It has been decided to raise the preparedness status of some combat units and other uniformed services,” spokesman Piotr Muller told reporters.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said earlier that two Russian missiles had hit Poland, which he described as “a very significant escalation”.
