White House press secretary Jean-Pierre: Missile that fell in Poland belongs to Ukraine
The rocket that fell in Poland is Ukrainian. That’s what White House spokeswoman Carine Jean-Pierre said on Friday, November 18.
“We have spoken publicly about the fact that the information we have confirms [Polish President Andrzej] Duda’s preliminary assessment that this (explosion. – Ed.) was most likely the result of a Ukrainian air defense missile that unfortunately fell in Poland,” she said during the briefing, which was broadcast by CNBC.
Washington and Warsaw are reportedly in contact with Kiev to clarify the circumstances of the incident.
On 15 November, Polish media reported that one or two rockets had hit a grain dryer located on the border with Ukraine in Przewodów. Two people were killed as a result of the incident. After that, versions emerged that the missiles were Russian and that Moscow was involved in the incident.
