A Polish politician has blamed Ukraine for causing a “provocation” by falsely claiming its own missile that struck Przewodow had been fired by Russia.
Immediately after news broke of the incident, President Zelensky called on NATO to take action against Russia, accusing Moscow of firing the rocket.
However, within hours it became clear that the accident, which killed two people, was actually caused by a Ukrainian air defense missile.
That didn’t stop British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, NATO and other prominent officials blaming Russia for the incident anyway, despite it clearly being Kiev’s fault.
Now the former chairman of the city council of Lublin, the seat of the region where Przewodow is located, is calling for Poland to rethink its approach to the war in light of the incident.
Having up until now been a staunch supporter of Ukraine, Jaroslaw Pakula said the missile accident showed Warsaw needed to send a blunt message to Kiev rather than telling its own citizens “fairy tales.”
“Of course, this is a Ukrainian rocket. Of course, this is a provocation on the part of the Ukrainian authorities,” Pakula posted on his Facebook page.
“The rocket could not be fired 100km in the opposite direction by mistake,” he added, asserting that the incident was an attempt to scare the EU into sending more money to Ukraine…

“...to scare the EU into sending more money to Ukraine”
I would respectfully beg to argue otherwise.
It was more an attempt to provoke an Article 5 NATO call-to-arms jump to direct involvement in Ukraine, as well as starting WWIII.
Not even an apology to Poland from the Zelensky Regime.
It’s also becoming pretty clear the “high ranking US officials” knew right out of the gate who fired the *two* S300 missiles into Poland, yet they lied about it for some time anyway.
Couple that with the absurd story the Russians blew up their own pipelines and are firing artillery shells at a large nuclear power plant, that they are guarding and it’s easy to see why only pea brained zombies believe a word of propaganda concerning brave, freedom fighters from the former state of Ukraine. Who have incidentally taken to criminally executing POWS.
The US population lives behind an Iron Curtain of fake news.
A lot of those missiles are probably thirty years old. That’s late seventies in human years. I’ve seen them turn around and hit their own guidance radar. They weren’t built to the best standards when new.
Which would be a great, reasonable excuse. But, the lying moron in office (no, not BeijingBiden THIS time) went with the story that benefited him.
Poles hate the Russians, so this is genuine anger.
This is only a low level politician, though, this isn’t the official Polish postion.
"It doesn’t surprise anyone that emotions are running high, that the president’s emotions are running high. The president is deeply concerned about what is happening to his people, who have elected him to this position and to whom he feels responsible," he added.
"I said what I said based on what our investigators have told me, based on what representatives of Polish services have told me, and on the materials and documents that I have been given," Duda added.
He stressed that the missile’s landing in Poland was an unfortunate and "absolutely not a deliberate event."
"There is a war on the other side of the border, Russia has launched several hundred missiles on Ukraine, Ukraine was defending itself, and as a result of this, unfortunately, the thing that happened had happened. No one wanted to harm anyone in Poland, let alone to kill anyone. This is just a tragedy, our shared tragedy in a certain sense, the biggest tragedy of those who had lost their loved ones – their parents and their husbands," the Polish president said.
He didn't say that. KGB set up the account with his picture and that's it. That's how it works. First rus nazi kacaps generate fake news, next thousands of Q-onanists and other psychos are tasked to spread it around.
