:BREAKING NEWS: Two deaths reported in Polish border town, as a wave of Russian missiles hit Ukraine

2 min read

Projectiles have reportedly killed two people after hitting a farm in Poland near the border with Ukraine on Tuesday, according to Polish media.

It is unclear where the projectiles came from, but they landed in the NATO member’s territory roughly the same time as Russia launched its biggest wave of missile attacks on Ukrainian cities in more than a month.

Polish media showed an image of a deep impact and upturned farm vehicle at the site, near the town of Przewodow.

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has convened the Committee of the Council of Ministers for National Security and Defense Affairs, a government spokesman said.

Latvia and Estonia respond

Latvian Defense Minister Artis Pabriks tweeted his “condolences to our Polish brothers in arms. Criminal Russian regime fired missiles which target not only Ukrainian civilians but also landed on NATO territory in Poland. Latvia fully stands with Polish friends and condemns this crime.”

There’s been no confirmation from Polish authorities that Russian missiles landed on Polish territory.

Another NATO member, Estonia, described the reports as “most concerning.”

The Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs commented on Twitter: “Latest news from Poland is most concerning. We are consulting closely with Poland and other Allies.

“Estonia is ready to defend every inch of NATO territory,” the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs commented on Twitter. “We’re in full solidarity with our close ally Poland.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin has long complained that NATO has, over time, expanded its borders by admitting Eastern European countries that were once part of the Soviet Union – meaning Russia now shares a land border with the world’s largest military alliance, thus reducing his geopolitical power in what was once Moscow’s sphere of influence.

As recently as February, he was demanding that NATO scaled back to the borders of 1997, before the Baltic nations of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, the latter two of which border Russia, joined the alliance.
