The media outlet believes that a mistake might have been made while programming the missile.

Agentstvo has noticed that the coordinates with this longitude match a commercial warehouse nearby a train station in Lviv. The latitude of the location in Przewodów matches a shipworks and armament plant in Kyiv.

Visegrád 24 also noted that Ukraine’s Dobrotvirska thermal power station which suffered yesterday’s missile attack is located several kilometres away from the Polish locality of Przewodów.

Polish radio station Zet was first to announce that two missiles had hit the locality of Przewodów, the Lublin Voivodeship, yesterday evening. The local firefighters confirmed that there had been explosions in the area. At the same time, a brigade captain said that it was unclear what caused the incident. He also said that two people died at the emergency site.

Polish air force jets took off from the airfield in Tomaszów Lubelski shortly afterwards. Military expert Jarosław Wolski published photos from the missile landing site in Poland, suggesting that it could be either a Russian cruise missile or a Ukrainian air defence system missile but urged to wait for an official report. AP reported, citing a US intelligence official, that the missiles that crossed into Poland could be Russian.

Poland’s Foreign Ministry later announced that a missile made in Russia hit an area near the border with Ukraine; the agency later summoned Russia’s ambassador in the country. The Polish leader Andrzej Duda noted that there was no accurate evidence on which side had launched the missile shortly before Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki urgently convened the committee of the ministerial council for national security and defence, his press service reported.
