    Good. Sounds like a groundwork for move of greater quantity of modern equipment ratified by alliance as a whole. So, no more you first fingerpointing.
    It is unlikely Poland calls for Article 5. It doesn't discriminate between intentional or accidental attacks.
    Russian military so bad, they hit the wrong country...

    Don't know if Poland can demand a no fly zone over Ukraine, as they see danger for further attacks on their territory.

    Or if they can force NATO into a compromise where they are going to donate serious amounts of AA to counter Russian aggression.
    Why is it called earth, when it is mostly water???

    I don't think they hit wrong country because so bad, simply missed intended target. Check my edit of previous post.

    Re Ukraine no fly zone - out of question, same as before. But putting more modern, long range AA on Polish-Ukrainian border? Yes, please. Depending on systems it puts Lviv as well under umbrella, might reach even further.

    And if it resorts to NATO acting as it is being forced to assist in air defence of Polish-Ukrainian border, then russian propaganda was right all along and it's an useless alliance.

    It means exactly what article 4 is. Nato members will meet and discuss how to respond. Which if agreed that nothing happens russian propaganda will have a field day with.

    Also polish officials confirm it was russian kh-101 missile and summoned russian ambasador. Meanwhile us official say it was ukrainian launched at russian one. Plot thickens...

    Missing S-300 or a Russian missile that could have been damaged by AA.

    Not likely. Here's a credible take from... r/ncd ....

    https://www.reddit.com/r/NonCredible..._stupid_right/

    And it wasn't S-300, it's a Kh-101, you can google photos of remains yourself or find it on r/ukraine or r/ncd. Reuters etc are again regurgitating russian propaganda served via TASS. Why it was repeated by some US official, I don't know.

    Biden has said it was unlikely the missile was fired from inside Russia (don't know if that includes Belarus).
    US it not normally wrong about these things.

    I have no idea who's right and who's wrong here. But if it indeed was a Russian missile started by th Russians and not by the Ukraine, then I think such statements from US officials - assuming they do know better, serve the purpose of calming things down a bit. Buying time while working behind the scenes to come up with a unisono (and sane) NATO response.

    To reiterate:

    When you have two targets but only one missile: (coordinates of Kyiv: 50.4501° N, 30.5234°E, coordinates of Lviv: 49.8429 ° N, 24.0311 ° E. Coordinates of the landing point of two missiles in Poland, as a result of which two people died: 50.4501° N, 24.0311° E.)

    Latitude of Kyiv, longitude of Lviv - blamo, Poland gets a missile.

    Again with picture and a map:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/NonCredible...y_one_missile/



    I would be laughing my ass off if 2 people haven't died.

    And yes Biden is not wrong. It couldn't be fired from russia because of range etc. It must have been fired from territory of Belarus, as I already said. And it's not the first time they launch from there.

    the thing to remember is that you can always take the x coordinate of some place and y coordinate of another place and arrive at your chosen xy point. We will know more once the type of missile has been identified to a high degree of confidentiality.

    Frankly Kyiv and Lviv are a "bit" removed from "take two random places, mix their coordinates to get wherever you want to go". Seeing this as a data entry error is at least plausible, if the above coordinates are correct.

    Biden said that it’s “Unlikely a Russian missile.”
    Quite possibly it was a Ukrainian S300.
    However it could be a Russian one as the Russians have been using older S300s in a ground attack role due to shortages of Iskanders, Tochkas, Kalibrs and other dedicated ground attack missiles.
    They've also been using K300P Bastion anti ship missiles against ground targets as well.

    No, that isn't what he said, he said it is unlikely that the missile was fired from Russia. I know the difference might be hard to understand. But we shall know more in due time.

    Look at the replies of said tweet. Those are not same parts. One is slanted other is concaved. It's a Kh-101. Everyone (me included) is runing amok citing anything they can find on twitter, polish newsportal just cited some random twitter that claimed Biden made statement it was ukrainian S300. No such statement has been made, or at least I can't find it, apart from the one discussed above. But circular citations started and others re-reported it. Meanwhile russian telegram channels are already celebrating. I guess they won information warfare on this one, at least for the time being. Let's see what the rest of the day will bring.

    From what I read, main argument for ground-attack S300 is lack of shrapnel. Kh101 uses fragmentation and proximity fuse: it means the tires you see in the photo would have been shredded and there would be no crater.
    At the end, NATO will downplay the event, like they did with military drone from Ukraine crashed into Zagreb in March.

    Pictures of it shows its a S300.
    Ukrainian Air Defense missile that missed its target and crashed in Poland.

    Still Russia's fault for attacking so close to Poland's border. Mistakes easily happen, and these types can have disastrous consequences.
