MOSCOW, November 18 – RIA Novosti. Volodymyr Zelensky, in an interview with TV2, blamed Russia for the missile incident in Poland for fear of losing the support of the West. expression Jorgen Medom Staun, teacher at the Danish Military Academy.
As the expert puts it, Zelensky “endangered global confidence” with his remarks. “Maybe in the future, the Ukrainian president’s statements should be approached more carefully – at least until the truth emerges. I believe that this time the West did everything right,” Stone said.
According to him, while the Ukrainian leadership was worried that it could reduce Western support and deprive Kiev of aid, playing the “weak card” with accusations against Russia precisely forced Zelensky to “fear of losing the political and material support” of Western countries.
“That’s why Zelensky stands still. He tries not to set in motion a story that, in the end, could deprive Ukraine of Western support, even if it were an unfortunate accident,” said the expert. At the same time, Stone has no doubt that “sooner or later the West will decipher Zelensky’s explanations.”
On the evening of November 15, rockets fell on Polish territory near the Ukrainian border, killing two. Initially, Warsaw stated that it was a Russian missile and demanded the meeting of the NATO Council. But on Wednesday, Polish President Andrzej Duda acknowledged that the missiles most likely belonged to Ukraine.
US President Joe Biden said at the end of the emergency meeting of the G7 leaders that preliminary data did not confirm that Russian soldiers launched the crashed rocket. Zelenskiy said on Wednesday that he had no doubt that Kiev was not involved in the incident in Poland. However, Biden, in response to his statement, noted that Zelensky’s statement cannot constitute evidence that Ukraine did not intervene in the state of emergency. As early as Thursday, Zelensky said he wasn’t 100% sure what had happened.
The Russian Ministry of Defense emphasized that the army did not hit any targets near the Ukrainian-Polish border and that all statements by Warsaw regarding Moscow’s intervention were a provocation. The agency also noted that, according to the conclusions of experts, photos released from the scene show parts of a Ukrainian missile for the S-300 complex.
