Andrzej Duda says there is no evidence that the rocket attack that killed two people was meant to target Poland

Poland President Andrzej Duda announced that the government has found no evidence that the rocket which stuck Polish territory on earlier this week was intentional. According to a report by Euronews on Thursday, November 17, Duda said, “There is no indication that this was an intentional attack on Poland, it was not a rocket aimed at Poland,” said Duda, while addressing the press in Warsaw.

He also said, the missile debris found from the site of the explosion that killed two civilians was a Soviet made S-300. “We have no evidence that the rocket was launched by the Russian side, there is a high probability that the rocket was used by the Ukrainian defense forces,” said, Duda.

Meanwhile, the Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said, the country is still analyzing the possibility of launching the NATO Article 4 procedure, according to the report. He further stated, the measures may not be necessary. “Most of the evidence gathered as of today indicates that the activation of Article 4 will not be necessary, but this instrument is in our hands”, the report adds.
