KYIV, Ukraine — Poland’s President Andrzej Duda says there is no evidence a missile that hit Poland near its border with Ukraine was an “intentional attack.”

Duda said Wednesday that the landing of the Russian-made missile in a rural area, killing two people, was mostly likely an accident.

“It was not an attack on Poland,” Duda said, adding that Tuesday’s incident involved “most probably a Russian-made missile.”

“We have no proof at this point to suggest the missile was fired by the Russian side,” Duda said.

He added: “There is high probability that it was a missile used for anti-missile defense, meaning it was used by Ukraine’s defense forces.”
