WARSAW, Sept 26 (Reuters) – Polish experts have confirmed that the missile that killed two people at a grain facility in southern Poland in November was fired by Ukraine, Rosieczpospolita daily reported, citing sources.

The missile explosion in NATO member Poland raised fears that the war in Ukraine could trigger the alliance’s mutual defense clause and escalate into a wider conflict, but at the time Warsaw and NATO said they believed It was a mistake of Ukraine, worried about the increase.

Sources with knowledge of the investigation told Rzeczpospolita that Poland has established that the missile that fell in the village of Przewodow was an S 300 5-W-55 air defense missile fired from Ukrainian territory.

“The range of this rocket is 75 km to 90 km,” the newspaper quoted a source as saying. “At that time, the Russian positions were in a place where no Russian missile could reach Presudo.”

Ukraine has denied that one of its missiles landed in Poland.

Rzeczpospolita reported that no materials have been made available by Ukraine to Polish investigators.

He quoted Lukasz Lapczynski, a spokesman for the Polish prosecutor’s office, as saying that the prosecutor had obtained an expert opinion but was not disclosing its content because it was confidential.

Lapczynski could not immediately be reached for comment and the prosecutor’s office did not immediately respond to an emailed request.
