‘Air defence missile’ was responsible for deaths and damage, not Russia – despite a day’s reporting otherwise by Western media
Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has confirmed that a missile that landed in Poland, killing two people, was fired by Ukraine. Stoltenberg, remarkably, said that the incident was ‘not Ukraine’s fault’ and that Russia still bore ‘ultimately responsibility’:
The admission comes after a day of reporting by Western media that a ‘Russian missile’ had caused the deaths – and concerted attacks and smears against anyone who suggested that the missile might have been fired by Ukraine or even that judgment should be suspended until the source of the rocket was known.
Ukrainian president Zelenskyy, unsurprisingly, continues to deny that the missile was fired by his military.
With a propaganda war underway from all sides in the Ukraine conflict Western media – particularly in the UK – have continued to report inaccurately, including a bucket of ‘gold teeth’ supposedly extracted in order to torture Ukrainians that German media discovered were simply decades’ worth of teeth pulled by a Ukrainian village dentist, who tried to claim them back. Those same media are now busy trying to spin away their readiness to jump to conclusions in this incident.
