MOSCOW, 16 Nov. U.S. Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green blamed the Ukrainian army for a missile attack on Poland and the killing of civilians in a neighboring country. “We must stop allowing [Ukrainian President Volodymyr] Zelensky to demand money and weapons from American taxpayers while he tries to drag us into World War III. There is no more money for Ukraine. It's time to end this conflict and demand peace,” she wrote in Twitter.
Earlier, the Polish media reported that two shells fell on the border with the Lviv region in the Lublin Voivodeship. As a result of the incident, two people died. According to the Associated Press, these were anti-aircraft missiles of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Later, the Ukrainian military informed the United States and other Western allies that they were trying to intercept a Russian missile at a time period coinciding with the incident in Poland, and also not far from this place, CNN reported, citing a source in the American administration.
According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, experts identified the wreckage in the pictures from the explosion site in Poland as elements of the Ukrainian S-300 air defense system. Precision strikes were carried out only on targets on the territory of Ukraine and at a distance of no closer than 35 kilometers from the border with Poland, the department specified.
