AP News reports this morning that NATO and NATO-member Poland now believe that yesterday’s missile strike in Przewodow, Poland, was not a Russian attack.  See the AP News report HERE.

Ukrainian defense forces likely launched the Soviet-era projectile as part of its defense against Russia’s ongoing attack against Ukraine’s power grid.

Poland’s President, Andrzej Duda, stated that “Ukraine’s defense was launching their missiles in various directions and it is highly probable that one of these missiles unfortunately fell on Polish territory…”.  He also stated that “[t]here is nothing, absolutely nothing, to suggest that it was an intentional attack on Poland.”

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, today affirmed Poland’s findings, stating that “[w]e have no indication that this was the result of a deliberate attack.”

CBS News is also reporting that the missile hitting Poland was a “stray” missile fired from Ukraine.  See the CBS News report HERE.

At least for now, the potential for a rapid escalation of the ongoing war has relented, but this incident shows just how quickly things can go wrong and result in regional or even worldwide war.  The ongoing Russian attacks on Ukraine’s infrastructure are decimating the electrical grid, just as winter is settling over the area.  The humanitarian crisis unfolding is hard to overstate.

Please continue to pray for an end of Russian hostilities, that the peace of God would overtake the land, and that Ukrainians would be able to find warmth, shelter and food to sustain them.
