Ukrainian presidential adviser: Russia to blame for any 'incidents with missiles'


- A senior adviser to Ukraine's president said on Wednesday that Russia was to blame for any "incidents with missiles" after its invasion of his country.

"In my opinion, it is to adhere to only one logic. The war was started and is being waged by Russia. Russia massively attacks Ukraine with cruise missiles," Mykhailo Podolyak said in a written statement after U.S. President Joe Biden said a missile that killed two people in Poland was probably fired from Russia.

"Russia has turned the eastern part of the European continent into an unpredictable battlefield. Intent, means of execution, risks, escalation - all this is only Russia. And there can be other explanation for any incidents with missiles."
