O White House National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan, announced today the offer of assistance to his Polish counterpart, Jacek Siewiera, during a phone call, the US presidency said in a statement.

According to the White House, Sullivan took the opportunity to express his country’s solidarity with Poland, a member of NATO, and offered Siewiera technical assistance from the US.

The North American statement did not specify whether the Polish Executive accepted the aid, but indicated that Siewiera showed gratitude for Washington’s support.

The White House also assured that US President Joe Biden, who is on vacation in the US Virgin Islands, is monitoring the situation “closely”.

The Polish armed forces reported that an unidentified object entered the country’s airspace this morning, in the direction of Ukraine, disappearing from radars, and that it was believed to be a Russian missile.

Both its radar and NATO radar confirmed the object’s trajectory in Polish airspace, said the head of Poland’s armed forces, General Wieslaw Kukula.

In November 2022, a Ukrainian missile fell on the Polish village of Przewodow, about six kilometers from the border with Ukraine, killing two civilians.

The explosion occurred at a time when Russia was carrying out massive attacks on Ukrainian civilian infrastructure across the country.

The Armed Forces loyal to the Kremlin launched one of the biggest attacks of the year with ‘drones’ (unmanned aircraft) in the early hours of today against Kiev, the country’s capital, and other cities such as Kharkiv.

More than 15 people died and dozens were injured, according to Ukrainian authorities

NATO Secretary General, Jens Soltenberg, assured today that the Atlantic Alliance will “remain vigilant” after the situation recorded by Poland.

The Atlantic Alliance also announced today, in a statement, that since 2023 it has intercepted Russian aircraft around 300 times, mainly in the Baltic Sea, recognizing, however, that these occurrences “are rare and short-lived”.
