Missile lands in Poland: two people killed
Sylvie Claire / November 16, 2022
A missile hit a farm in the Polish village of Przewodow, about six kilometers from the border with Ukraine, at 3:40 p.m. Tuesday, killing two people, according to the Polish Foreign Ministry.
Warsaw had earlier confirmed that the missile was "most likely Russian-made", but that there was no "equivocal evidence" at this stage about who fired it. Both Ukraine and Russia use Soviet-designed missiles.
There are indications that the missile that hit a village in eastern Poland was an anti-aircraft missile from Ukraine. That's what U.S. President Joe Biden told G7 leaders Wednesday, according to DPA.
U.S. President Joe Biden reportedly referred to a missile from the S-300 system.
Speaking to reporters after an emergency meeting with the other G7 leaders on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Bali, Biden said preliminary information showed it was "unlikely"...that the missile was fired from Russia.
In addition to the presidents or heads of government of the United States, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, Canada and Japan, the leaders of Spain, the Netherlands and the European Union also participated in the hour-long meeting.
