NATO are considering a “counter-attack” after Russian missiles have crossed their border which could lead to direct confrontation with Moscow.

There are fears that Europe could be dragged into the Ukrainian war as a Russian missile entered NATO airspace.

On Sunday a Russian ballistic missile entered into Polish airspace near to the Polish town of Oserdów in the Lublin Voivodeship placing the region on high alert.

Poland’s deputy foreign minister Andrzej Szejna told RMF24: [Russia] knew that if the missile moved further into Poland, it would be shot down.

“There would be a counter-attack. Various concepts are being analysed within NATO, including for such missiles to be shot down when they are very close to the NATO border.”

“But this would have to happen with the consent of the Ukrainian side and taking into account the international consequences,” he added.

Sabrina Singh, a spokesman for the Pentagon, was asked over the statement made by Poland, Singh replied, “What the administration says repeatedly is that we will defend every inch of NATO.

“Should the NATO ally be attacked – we certainly don’t want to see that – but we will defend every inch of NATO.”

On Sunday, Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz, the head of the Ministry, said, “At 4:43, the airspace of the Republic of Poland was violated by one of the Russian missiles... It entered our country to a depth of 1,000-2,000 metres.”

He added, “If there was any indication that the Russian missile… was heading towards a target in Poland, it would be shot down.”

the Deputy Prime Minister said, “All actions have been taken to inform the most important people in the country… We are in contact with the Operational Command of the Armed Forces.”

Warsaw are on a war footing and are preparing for war with Russia as the government have increased their defence spending of their GDP and all troops are on a heightened readiness in response to Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.

The head of military administration, Serhiy Popko wrote on Telegram, “The enemy continues massive missile terror against Ukraine. It does not give up its goal or destroying Kyiv at any cost.”

Lviv which is close to the Polish border had seven drones and 20 missiles bombarding their “critical infrastructure,” according to Popko.
