Kyiv, Ukraine – Sirens blared again in Kyiv today, and the Fox News team heard explosions nearby.
Russian missiles were launched in a massive attack on Ukraine on Tuesday, and one struck inside Poland, raising international concern.
Early reports said a Russian missile landed three miles inside Poland, hitting an agricultural site and killing two people perhaps by accident.
Ukrainian President Zelenskyy was still very concerned.

“This is a very significant escalation. We must act,” he said in a television address.
It is significant because any attack on a NATO country by another nation could trigger “Article 5” military action by the alliance. NATO says it is concerned but does not confirm the reports. Neither does the Pentagon.

“We don’t have any information at this time to corroborate those reports,” said Pentagon spokesman Gen. Pat Ryder, “and we are looking into this further.”
Moscow strongly denies that it was involved. According to a Defense Ministry spokesperson, “no attacks were carried out on targets near the Ukrainian-Polish state border by Russian means of destruction.”
Later reports suggested that what landed in Poland may have been fragments of a Russian missile shot down by Ukrainian air defences.
Poland is confirming that the missile was made in Russia.

A Fox News crew saw something similar when they went to the scene of a Russian attack in Kyiv on Tuesday. A Russian missile flying over Kyiv had been hit by a Ukrainian missile and fell to the ground in pieces, severely damaging and burning down an apartment building. One person died, another was injured.
When Fox arrived in the neighborhood, the fire was out, but the damage was evident. Emergency workers rushed to the scene. Some took fragments of the missile.
A witness told Fox that the fireball in the sky was “shocking.” Another said it was simply the work of the “Russian terrorist state.”
In total, according to officials here, some 90 Russian missiles were launched across the country and 70 were shot down by Ukraine. Fifteen collided with the power grid, leaving millions of people across the country without power.

NATO says it will consider acting on the cross-border missile incident. Poland reportedly suggested that “Article 4” of the alliance be considered, which is a response to a threat rather than an attack by another nation on an alliance member.
