Information to remember
The investigation continues into the missile that hit Poland and killed two people on Tuesday evening. Traces of an accidental launch from Ukraine are emerging and are being supported by Westerners, including the United States, while Ukrainian authorities maintain that it was a Russian missile.
At the end of the morning, the Ukrainian president, questioned by Bloomberg, gave a more measured speech. “I don’t know what happened this time, we don’t know 100%, I don’t think the world knows 100% either,” he said. But I am sure there was a Russian missile and we used air defense missiles (…) But we have to be fair and honest, until the investigation is over, we cannot say what was the type of missile whose fragments fell on Polish territory,” he added.
At the same time, Ukraine continues to suffer from Russian strikes. Especially in Dnipro, where fourteen people were injured, including a 15-year-old girl. In the Kharkiv region, according to the Ukrainian authorities, three people were also injured in a strike and hospitalized.
