The Ukrainian military told US and allies that it attempted to intercept a Russian missile during the timeframe and near that location of the Poland missile strike, a US official told CNN.
It’s not clear this air defense missile is the same missile that struck Poland, but this information has informed an ongoing US assessment of the strike.
A Pentagon spokesperson referred CNN to comments by US President Joe Biden last night: “It’s unlikely, in the minds of the trajectory, that it was fired from Russia. But we’ll see. We’ll see.”
