U.S., Polish officials spoke with Ukraine to clarify deadly missile incident: White House

U.S. and Polish officials have been in touch with Ukraine to clarify the facts about a missile that struck southeastern Poland and killed two people on Tuesday, White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre said on Friday. Warsaw and its Western allies say evidence from the scene points to the explosion being caused by a Ukrainian air defence missile that went astray in pursuit of a Russian missile. Kyiv denies this, saying it has evidence of a "Russian trace" in the blast.
