This week a missile landed in Poland killing two farmers close to the Ukrainian border and the causes of this are still being investigated.
This prompted the Polish government to order their national football team who are heading to Qatar for the World Cup to be escorted by armed F-16 fighter jets.
The fighter jets escorted the passenger jet to the border of Slovakia and they then returned back to base.
NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said this week it could have been a Ukrainian missile which was to intercept a Russian missile which may have gone stray and landed in Poland.
Stoltenberg said, “This is not Ukraine’s fault. Russia bears ultimate responsibility.”

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky said this week that he has “no doubts” that this wasn’t our missile or our missile strike.”
He added, “Let’s say openly, if, God forbid, some remnant (of Ukraine’s air-defences) killed a person, these people, then we need to apologise.
“But first there needs to be a probe, access — we want to get the data you have.”
