Russia says its strikes in Ukraine were closer than 35km to Polish border

- Russia's defence ministry said on Wednesday that its strikes on Ukraine on Nov. 15 were closer than 35 km (22 miles) from the Polish border, RIA agency reported.

NATO member Poland's president said earlier that Poland had concrete evidence showing who fired a missile that struck a Polish grain facility some 6 km (4 miles) inside the border with Ukraine and killed two people.

A NATO source said U.S President Joe Biden had informed G7 and NATO partners that the blast in POland had been caused by a Ukrainian air defence missile.
