Zelensky insists explosion in Poland was NOT caused by Ukrainian missile after Nato chief says it probably was

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said he has no doubt Tuesday’s deadly explosion in Poland was not caused by a Ukrainian missile.

“I have no doubt that it was not our missile,” he said, according to the Interfax Ukraine news agency.

Alarm bells were set off around the world on Tuesday night when The Associated Press reported an unnamed US intelligence official as saying Russian missiles had crossed into Nato member Poland.

Nato is conducting an investigation into the apparent strike on the village of Przewodow - which killed two people - but on Wednesday its general-secretary Jens Stoltenberg said the blast was likely to have been caused by a stray Ukrainian air defence missile.

Within hours of the incident, Mr Zelensky had blamed it on “Russian missile terror”, and Kyiv did not appear ready on Wednesday to concede its own missile may have been involved.
