Missile explosion in Poland: EU says incident result of Russian attacks on civilian targets in Ukraine


The EU fully supports Poland’s ongoing investigation to establish the facts on the ground after the missile explosion which took place on 15 November in the Polish village of Przewodów near the border with Ukraine and killed two Polish citizens.

 “We will stay in close contact with our partners, including NATO, on the next steps,” said a statement by High Representative Josep Borrell on behalf of the EU.

He added that this tragic incident is a result of yet another massive wave of missile attacks on Ukrainian cities by Russia on 15 November, targeting civilians and civilian infrastructure. “These attacks are gross violations of international law,” said Borrell. “We express our condolences to the families of the victims in Poland and Ukraine.”
