Polish president says missile that hit village was probably 'old' S-300 rocket

- The missile that caused an explosion in a Polish village the Ukrainian border was probably an S-300, the Polish president said on Wednesday.

"From the information that we and our allies have, it was an S-300 rocket made in the Soviet Union, an old rocket and there is evidence that it was launched by the Russian side," Andrzej Duda said. "It is highly probable that it was fired by Ukrainian anti-aircraft defense."
