President Volodymyr Zelensky on Wednesday called on Ukraine’s allies to share “all data” about the missile that landed in Poland, which Kiev insists was fired by Russia, a claim contradicted by Warsaw.
Two people were killed on Tuesday when at least one missile hit the village of Przewodow near the Ukrainian border during a massive Russian bombing of civilian infrastructure in Western-backed Ukraine.
In the immediate aftermath of the incident, there were fears it could signal another escalation in the conflict, but Poland announced on Wednesday that the projectile likely came from Ukraine’s own air defenses. That theory was subsequently endorsed by Washington.
“We want to establish every detail, every fact. That’s why we need access to all the data our partners have and the site of the explosion,” Zelensky said in his nightly address.
Zelensky had previously said that Kiev had seen no evidence that the missile was Ukrainian and that it was imperative that Kiev be part of an investigation.
