Two killed in blast in Poland

 


President Biden has pledged support for an investigation into a missile that killed two Polish citizens in an explosion, but suggested to reporters that the missile probably had not been fired from Russia. “There is preliminary information that contests that,” he said, citing the missile’s trajectory.

His comments came after Poland held an emergency meeting of its national security and defense council. It follows an announcement by the Polish president, Andrzej Duda, that he would most likely call for invoking Article 4 of the NATO charter, under which members confer when a nation’s territorial integrity or security has been threatened.

The Kremlin has denied any involvement in the explosion, and no evidence has emerged that the strike was intentional, or that Russia was responsible. Russia yesterday bombarded Ukraine’s electrical infrastructure, in one of  the widest  aerial attacks since the invasion  began.



Two diplomats from NATO countries said that NATO ambassadors would meet in Brussels this morning to discuss the situation. President Biden joined G7 leaders this morning to discuss the situation in Poland. Asked by reporters after the meeting whether the missile had been fired from Russia, he suggested it was not.
