Following Russia’s “massive” missile attack on Ukrainian cities overnight, Poland has reported that an unidentified object entered their airspace from Ukraine on Friday morning.

Colonel Jacek Goryszewski, spokesman of the operational command of the armed forces said in a television interview said the incident could be linked to bombing raid that took place in Ukraine.

Colonel Goryszewski said, “The object arrived from the Ukrainian border.

“There was intense shelling of Ukrainian territory at night so this incident could be linked to that.”

AFP reported that Colonel Goryszewski added the incident happened close to the border city of Zamosc.

Radar tracked “the moment it crossed the border to the point where the signal disappeared.”

He said that incident occurred “in the morning hours” and Poland “activated available forces and means at its disposal.”

Earlier this month Poland warned that NATO must be on alert for a Russian attack over the next three years.

The head of Poland’s national security agency, Jacek Siewiera said that Russia could attack Estonia, Romania, Lithuania and Poland who are on NATO’s eastern flank within the next 36 months.

The head of Poland’s national security agency has strongly advised NATO to expect “confrontation” and prepare.

A German think tanks has also issued a warning that NATO countries must be on alert for an escalation with Russia, said the German Council on Foreign Relations.

They said in a statement: “With its imperial ambitions, Russia represents the greatest and most ­urgent threat to NATO countries.

Once intensive fighting will have ended in Ukraine, the regime in Moscow may need as little as six to ten years to reconstitute its armed forces.

Within that time frame, Germany and NATO must enable their armed forces to deter and, if necessary, fight against Russia.

“Only then will they be in a position to reduce the risk of another war breaking out in Europe.”

The head of Poland’s national security agency said, “If we want to avoid war, NATO countries on the eastern flank should adopt a shorter, three-year time horizon to prepare for confrontation.

“This is the time when a potential must be created on the eastern flank that would be a clear signal deterring aggression. Therefore, it is necessary to further increase the number of Polish troops.”

In September the Kremlin warned that “friction” between Ukraine and Europe is “inevitable” as tensions reach an all-time high.

The Kremlin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that it is unavoidable tensions between Kyiv and Western allies would grow.

Peskov then made comment over Poland and Ukraine have engaged in a war of words over grain exports which has led to Warsaw pulling out of supplying any further weapons to Kyiv but will honour the current arms contract.

Peskov said, “There are certain frictions between Warsaw and Kyiv. We predict that these frictions between Warsaw and Kyiv will increase.

“Friction between Kyiv and other European capitals will also grow over time. This is inevitable.

“We are, of course, watching this closely.”

Peskov added that Kyiv and Warsaw are “the main” centres of Russophobia and said that Poland are a “rather aggressive” country and accused Warsaw of “subversive activities.”

An expert has said that the “Poles really hate the Russians” and that they are “gagging for a fight” with Moscow.

The Kremlin’s spokesman then said that Russia is “on alert” over any “potential threats that may come from Poland.”
