World War 3 Concern: Russian Missile Hits Poland, Kills 2 Polish Citizens

Early on Wednesday, Poland announced that an explosion caused by a Russian missile strike in the country’s east had killed two persons. This was the first time Russian weapons used in its conflict with Ukraine had an effect on a NATO country.

According to a statement from the Polish government, Zbigniew Rau contacted the Russian ambassador and sought fast, comprehensive answers for the incident.

Piotr Mueller, a spokesman for the Polish government, said that several military units have been put on alert as authorities investigate.

Deadly Russian Missile Strikes Poland

The Russian Defense Ministry insisted that photographs of purported damage “had nothing to do” with Russian weapons and rejected any involvement in any assaults on areas close to the Polish-Ukrainian border.

The strike allegedly took place in a grain drying facility in the village of Przewodów, which is close to the Ukrainian border.

On Tuesday, Russia bombed Ukraine’s energy sector with its biggest missile barrage yet, striking sites across the country and causing extensive outages.

Due to its proximity to the border, Moldova was also affected by the barrage. An official verified that there were severe power disruptions in the tiny nation after the rockets destroyed a vital power cable feeding it.

Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine, stated in a statement that Russia has blacked out many cities after firing at least 85 missiles, most of which were intended at the country’s power plants.

The strike, which targeted both the power transmission and generating networks, was the worst bombardment of the power infrastructure during the almost nine-month-old Russian invasion, according to the Ukrainian ministry of energy.

As it affected a NATO country like Poland, the purported strike represents a serious escalation in the simmering Ukraine-Russia confrontation. As Twitter users voice their concerns about a potential World War 3, the terms “Poland,” “NATO,” and “Russia” have taken the top three US trends spots.

In accordance with Article 4 of the military alliance treaty, which states that “the Parties will consult together whenever, in the opinion of any of them, the territorial integrity, political independence, or security of any of the Parties is threatened,” the NATO member is reportedly already considering invoking this clause.

There are rumors that Poland may also use NATO’s Article 5, which states that “the Parties agree that an armed action against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be regarded an attack against them all,” even though the inquiry is still underway.

The US has deployed specialists to inspect the site, said Polish President Andrzej Duda. On Tuesday, Jens Stoltenberg, the secretary general of NATO, said that before drawing conclusions, facts must first be “established.”
