Peskov on Polish missile incident: ‘The prime cause of everything is NATO’ and the U.S.
NATO and the U.S. are the “prime cause of everything” that happened in Poland when two missiles landed on Polish territory on November 15, the day of Russia’s massive missile strikes on Ukraine.
Commenting on the White House statement on Russia’s ultimate responsibility for the incident that killed two in Poland, the Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said:
The Americans are speaking in a paradigm of “this wouldn’t have happened if something else hadn’t happened before.” So it makes sense to rewind a bit farther — and then we’ll see the prime cause of everything — which is NATO, with the U.S. in charge.
Peskov did not elaborate on the precise way in which the U.S. and NATO might have “caused” the tragedy in Poland.
On November 15, the Polish media reported two missiles falling in the Lublin province of Poland, near the Ukrainian border. The missiles struck a farm in the village of Przewodów, where two people were killed as a result. On the same day — the first day of the G20 summit then taking place in Bali — Russia conducted a series of massive missile strikes on Ukraine.
Kyiv and its Western partners are of the opinion that Russia is ultimately responsible for the incident in Poland, regardless of the exact origin of the two missiles, since it would not have happened if not for Russia’s aggressive war against Ukraine.
