US President Biden Says Missile Blast in Poland May Not Have Been Fired from Russia

U.S. President Joe Biden said early information suggests the blast that killed two in Poland on Tuesday may not have been caused by a missile fired from Russia.

Biden said after NATO and world leaders gathered for the G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia, had an emergency meeting on Wednesday after a Russian-made missile fell on NATO member Poland and killed two people, sparking fears that the Ukraine war could spill over its boundaries.

The blast happened around 24 kilometers from the Ukrainian border, just before dusk local time, as Russia launched a major wave of missiles towards Ukrainian cities and energy facilities.

It is unclear who fired a missile that reached Polish territory late Tuesday, despite President Andrzej Duda’s statements that the projectile was “Russian-made” and variously referred to as a missile or a rocket.
