UN chief ‘concerned’ over reports of missile strike in Poland

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres expressed concern Tuesday over reports of a suspected missile attack in Poland and called for avoiding escalating the war in Ukraine.

Guterres is “very concerned by the reports of a missile exploding on Polish territory. It is absolutely essential to avoid escalating the war in Ukraine,” said UN deputy spokesperson Farhan Haq on Twitter.

At least two people were killed in the suspected missile attack in eastern Poland’s village of Przewodow, located a few kilometers from the border with Ukraine.

Speaking on behalf of Guterres, Haq said the UN secretary general expresses his condolences to the families of the victims and “hopes that a thorough investigation will be conducted.”

Poland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said early Wednesday that the missiles were Russian made.

Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau summoned the Russian ambassador to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with a demand to provide a detailed immediate explanation.

The explosion occurred 500-600 meters from a primary school. The area near the explosion site is closed.
