Biden Says Missile That Hit Poland Probably Not Fired From Russia

A missile that killed two people in Poland was unlikely to have been fired from Russia, U.S. President Joe Biden said on Wednesday, after the blast raised global alarm that the Ukraine conflict could spill into neighbouring countries.

NATO ambassadors were due to hold an emergency meeting on Wednesday to respond to the explosion at a grain dryer near the Ukrainian border, which occurred while Russia was firing scores of missiles at cities across Ukraine.

Kyiv says it shot down most of the incoming Russian missiles with its own air defence missiles. Ukraine's Volyn region, just across the border from Poland, was one of the many it says was targeted by Russia's attacks.
