Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says that a missile that hit Poland, killing two, was Russian.

“I have no doubt that this is not our missile,” Zelensky says in televised remarks. “I believe that this was a Russian missile, based on our military reports.”

Zelensky’s comments contradict those of Poland and NATO, which both said the explosion was likely caused by a Ukrainian air defense missile launched to intercept a Russian barrage.

Zelensky says Kyiv has not seen proof that the missile was Ukrainian, and says it is imperative Ukraine become part of an investigation.
