Poland Considers Shooting Down Russian Missiles Near Border With Ukraine

Poland is considering the potential engagement of its air defense systems in intercepting Russian missiles over Ukrainian airspace, as stated by Pawel Wronski, spokesperson for the Polish Foreign Ministry, in an interview with RMF FM on May 22nd.

Confirming recent remarks by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba regarding potential collaboration on the interception of Russian missiles over Ukrainian airspace, Wronski acknowledged that Ukraine had indeed reached out to Poland with this proposal.

“This issue is being considered from legal and technical perspectives, but no decisions have been made yet,” Wronski said.

Wronski clarified that discussions on the matter were initiated following an incident in March, during which a Russian missile breached Poland’s airspace, remaining there for a duration of 39 seconds.

In an exclusive interview with Reuters, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy called on partners to help shoot down Russian missiles over the territory of Ukraine to compensate for the deficit of Kyiv’s air defense.

Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba urged allies to consider additional options for stopping Russian missiles, including potentially allowing them to be shot down from allied territory
