MOSCOW, November 16. /TASS/. Moscow is convinced that an impartial probe into the missile incident in Poland will uncover the Kiev regime’s false flag propaganda, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.
"We are convinced that an unbiased investigation and the publication of its results will expose that provocation," the ministry said.
In addition, the Russian Foreign Ministry focused attention on the reaction from certain NATO members and media outlets.
"We have taken note of the outrageous reaction to the incident by a number of NATO countries and media outlets," the statement reads. "Western agencies held the so-called consultations that gave rise to a new wave of unsubstantiated accusations, which, however, quickly subsided. We see this mayhem as deliberate actions and part of the West’s systemic anti-Russian campaign around Ukraine," the ministry added.
"We draw particular attention to the swiftness with which representatives of the Kiev regime have begun to accuse Russia. It seems that the Kiev authorities are using every opportunity to accuse Russia and attempt to consolidate Western support against the background of the fact that the regime of [Ukrainian President Vladimir] Zelensky seems to have tired its patrons. Especially since preliminary data on this incident points to Ukraine," the ministry pointed out in connection with the projectile incident in Poland.
On Tuesday, a missile fell in the village of Przewodow in eastern Poland’s Lublin Voivodeship on the border with Ukraine, killing two people. According to Polish President Andrzej Duda, this was not a deliberate attack on Poland. Warsaw has learned that the missile was most likely an S-300 missile produced in the 1970s, used by the Ukrainian missile anti-aircraft forces.
The Russian Defense Ministry slammed the Polish media and officials' statements about the alleged fall of Russian missiles as provocation, saying that the country did not strike anything near the Ukrainian-Polish border. The Russian Defense Ministry pointed out that judging by the published photos, the debris had nothing to do with Russian missiles.
