Poland summoned Russian charge d'affaires Andrei Ordash Saturday after a Russian missile entered the Polish airspace during the morning mass attack against Ukraine.
Poland's Deputy Foreign Minister Wladyslaw Teofil Bartoszewski handed Ordash a note demanding an explanation of the incident and an immediate cessation of such activities, the ministry wrote in a statement.
During the attack, the Polish army's Operational Command recorded an unidentified object entering Poland's airspace from the border with Ukraine. The incident prompted Polish President Andrzej Duda to convene an emergency meeting of the National Security Council.
After the meeting, Polish military officials said that the aerial object was likely a Russian missile, which spent less than three minutes in the country's airspace and then went back to Ukraine.
Witnesses reportedly saw the object moving at great speed above the village of Dolhobyczow in Lublin Voivodeship, less than 5 kilometers from the Ukrainian border. (QNA)
