The missile that hit Poland was fired by Ukrainian forces, media reported, citing US officials.

American sources indicated that the missile was fired by the UAF to shoot down a Russian missile.

Initial reports indicate that the missile that hit Poland was fired by Ukrainian forces at an approaching Russian missile”, - writes the Associated Press.

On November 15, it became known about the fall of two rockets in the Polish village of Przewoduv near Lublin, near the Ukrainian border. The media reported two deaths. Experts recognized the S-300 wreckage in the photo. Some analysts recalled that Russia does not use the SM-300, they are in service with Ukraine. The Russian Ministry of Defense called the statements of the Polish media about allegedly Russian missiles a provocation in order to escalate the situation.

"We are working to find out all the reasons with international experts. We turned to our allies for support, with whom we are in constant contact", - said Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki following the Cabinet meeting.

The Prime Minister urged the Poles to remain calm.

"I call on all compatriots to remain calm, to be especially careful about attempts at disinformation. Now, at this hour on days like these, we should be together. Together we are safe, and together we will not be intimidated. Together we are strong”, - the politician announced.

He added that Poland will increase the combat readiness of individual units of the Armed Forces with a special focus on airspace monitoring, which will be carried out "strongly together with the allies".

US President Joe Biden, following a meeting with world leaders in Bali, said that preliminary data refute that missiles were fired towards Poland from Russia.

Today, an emergency meeting of the ambassadors of the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance will be held in Brussels because of the incident in eastern Poland. Polish President Andrzej Duda said that nothing indicates that the shelling of Polish territory with rockets can be repeated.
