MOSCOW, November 16. /TASS/. The ambassadors of NATO countries will convene for an emergency meeting over Tuesday’s incident in eastern Poland, the Reuters news agency reported on Wednesday citing two diplomats.
According to the report, the meeting will be held on Poland’s request, on the basis of Article 4 of the NATO treaty.
One of the sources said the alliance would act with caution. Establishing facts about the incident would take time, the source added.
Poland’s Radio Zet reported on Tuesday with reference to unofficial sources that two missiles hit grain dryers in the village of Przewodow in eastern Poland’s Lublin Voivodeship, close to the border with Ukraine. According to the report, two people were killed in the incident. The report makes no mention about the origin of those missiles.
The Russian Defense Ministry dismissed as a "deliberate provocation" Polish media reports about the alleged fall of Russian missiles in Poland on Tuesday, adding that the Russian military has performed no strikes targeting the Ukrainian-Polish border zone. "The wreckage published by Polish mass media from the scene in Przewodow have no relation to Russian firepower," the ministry said in a statement.
