UNITED NATIONS, November 16. /TASS/. Kiev is dreaming of getting NATO dragged into a direct confrontation with Russia, Russia’s First Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Dmitry Polyansky said.
Commenting on the incident of a missile falling on Polish soil, he wrote on Twitter, "The Kiev regime [is] dreaming to trigger [a] direct military clash between NATO and Russia."
According to the Russian diplomat, Kiev needs such provocations "to save Ukraine from [an] imminent defeat."
Earlier, the Polish Foreign Ministry claimed that a Russian-made missile had crashed in the village of Przewodow in eastern Poland, killing two people. Poland’s leader Andrzej Duda said there was no evidence pointing at who fired the missile so far. US President Joe Biden cited preliminary information contesting claims that the missile that landed in Poland had been fired from Russia. "It is unlikely in the lines of the trajectory that it was fired from Russia," Biden said.
The Russian Defense Ministry branded claims by Polish media outlets and officials of allegedly Russian missiles falling on Polish soil as provocations since there had been no Russian strikes near the Ukrainian-Polish border. The Russian military agency pointed out that the published photos of the wreckage from the incident site have nothing in common with Russian weapons.
