“Statements by various Ukrainian sources and foreign officials about the fall of allegedly ‘Russian missiles’ in the village of Przevodow are a deliberate provocation with the aim of escalating the situation,” the Ministry noted.

They also added that precision strikes were carried out only on targets on the territory of Ukraine and at a distance no closer than 35 kilometers from the border with Poland.

In addition, the Ministry stressed that during yesterday’s shelling, they did not strike at the Ukrainian capital.

“All the destruction demonstrated by the Kiev regime in residential quarters of the Ukrainian capital is a direct consequence of the fall and self-destruction of anti-aircraft missiles fired by Ukrainian troops from Ukrainian and foreign air defense complexes located within the city,” the Defense Ministry said.

As reminded, the night before, Polish media reported that two rockets fell in the Lublin voivodeship on the border with Ukraine. As a result of the emergency, two people were killed. According to the AP news agency, these were Ukrainian missiles fired to intercept Russian shells.

At the same time, immediately after the incident, the Polish Foreign Ministry claimed that Russian-made missiles had fallen, and the ambassador was summoned. At the same time, President Andrzej Duda noted that there is no exact information yet.

The Russian Defense Ministry stressed that the military did not strike any targets near the Ukrainian-Polish border, and all Warsaw’s statements about Moscow’s involvement are a provocation.
