Missile in Poland, summit in Bali. Biden: “Improbable to have left Russia”

The US president: “We will investigate and decide the next step”

It is “improbable” that the missile that fell in Poland, on the border with Ukraine, originated from Russia. It is the synthesis of the position that Joe Biden, president of the United States, expressed in Bali, headquarters of the G20. Biden met in a summit with other heads of state and government. At the table were German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, French President Emmanuel Macron, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, Japanese Prime Minister Kishida Fumio, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen and the President of the European Council Charles Michel.

“Preliminary information disputes” the thesis according to which the missile would have originated from Russia. “I don’t want to say until we complete the investigation”, the words of Biden, who referred to a “deliberate provocation”. The US president briefed the other participants in the summit on the conversation he had with Polish President Andrzej Duda and on contacts with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

“We agree to support Poland’s investigation into the explosion in the rural area bordering Ukraine. I will make sure we find out exactly what happened,” Biden added. “Then we will collectively decide our next step: there was total unanimity at the table.”
