Quote from Duda: "I have spoken with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. This is an extremely difficult situation for Ukraine, emotions are running high and there is an enormous amount of stress. Over the course of the last couple of days Ukraine has suffered a particularly large-scale Russian missile attack. Russia has cruelly and ruthlessly launched several hundred missiles on Ukraine," Duda said.


"It doesn’t surprise anyone that emotions are running high, that the president’s emotions are running high. The president is deeply concerned about what is happening to his people, who have elected him to this position and to whom he feels responsible," he added.

Details: The Polish president said that Zelenskyy’s claim that the missile that landed in Poland was not a Ukrainian missile is based on the fact that "everyone wants to see the evidence they want to see."

"I said what I said based on what our investigators have told me, based on what representatives of Polish services have told me, and on the materials and documents that I have been given," Duda added.


He stressed that the missile’s landing in Poland was an unfortunate and "absolutely not a deliberate event."

"There is a war on the other side of the border, Russia has launched several hundred missiles on Ukraine, Ukraine was defending itself, and as a result of this, unfortunately, the thing that happened had happened. No one wanted to harm anyone in Poland, let alone to kill anyone. This is just a tragedy, our shared tragedy in a certain sense, the biggest tragedy of those who had lost their loved ones – their parents and their husbands," the Polish president said.

Previously: On 16 November, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that he was convinced that the missile that landed in Poland on Tuesday, 15 November, was not Ukrainian.
