Warsaw has no info on who launched missile that landed in eastern Poland — leader

"But we are still investigating," Andrzej Duda said

WARSAW, November 16. /TASS/. The authorities of Poland do not have precise information on who launched the missile that fell in the east of the country on Tuesday, President Andrzej Duda told reporters on Wednesday.

"We know that the Russian missile attack on Ukraine continued throughout the day [on Tuesday]. But we do not have unequivocal evidence pointing at who fired this missile. Investigative procedures are under way," he said. "I am firmly convinced that investigators will find this out."

"Most likely, it was a Russian-made missile. But we are still investigating," the president continued.

"We are still waiting for results of the investigation," Duda added. "But it undoubtedly was a missile blast."

In Duda’s opinion, the incident in eastern Poland was a one-time occurrence that must never happen again.

"Nothing points to the possibility that any event of this kind should happen again," he said. "At this point, it would be fair to say that this event was a one-time occurrence."

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 of the origin of those missiles.

The Russian Defense Ministry said the Russian military had 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.
