Biden rejects Zelensky's contention that the missile that struck Poland was Russian

Comments by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that the missile that fell on Poland was not Ukrainian are not proof, US President Joseph Biden said. "That is not evidence " Biden told reporters at the White House after returning from the G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia.

On Tuesday, November 15, a missile landed in the village of Przhevodov in eastern Poland, near the border with Ukraine. Two people died in the incident, and Zelensky blamed Russia for it and called on the West to "do something"

No Ukrainian missile could have caused the explosion in Poland, Zelensky says Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Wednesday that there is no doubt that the explosion that killed two people in Poland was not caused by a Ukrainian missile, Interfax Ukraine reported.

"I have no doubt that it was not our missile," he told Ukrainian media.

Ukraine's main US ally disagrees that it was a Russian missile.

US President Joe Biden said today that the missile that fell on Polish territory was a Ukrainian air defense missile.

Likewise, Polish President Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki held a meeting of the National Security Council today, where they discussed the fall of a rocket on Polish territory. “There is no indication that this was an intentional attack on Poland.

Most likely, it was a Russian-made S-300 rocket,” Duda said in a tweet earlier Wednesday. On the other hand, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak believes that Russia is to blame for the missile attack that took place in Poland last night, regardless of who fired the missile.

"Ukraine must defend its homeland from the illegal and barbaric series of attacks by Russia," said the British Prime Minister at the G20 summit in Bali. However, Polish President Andrzej Duda said yesterday that, according to the assessment of the Polish authorities, it was a missile of the Ukrainian air defense system.

The State Department has announced that the Biden administration trusts Warsaw's assessment. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia condemned the statements from Kyiv about the incident as a provocation, and the Ministry of Defense announced that it was a missile fired from the Ukrainian S-300 missile system.
