Poland holds emergency security meeting after reports of fatal explosion, as Russian missiles bombard nearby Ukraine
Goodness is hidden, silent; it requires slow and continuous excavation. Because God’s style is discreet. He does not impose himself. He is like the air we breathe - we don't see it but it allows us to live, and we realize it only when it's missing.— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) November 15, 2022
Just to reiterate the crucial role that Twitter plays in disaster communication: The story about Russian missiles hitting Poland broke on Twitter in near real-time. Within an hour of the first images being posted to Twitter, U.S. intelligence confirmed the missile strike. pic.twitter.com/lYhRfjqYT2— Caroline Orr Bueno, Ph.D (@RVAwonk) November 15, 2022
Suspected Russian missile hits Poland, a NATO nation. Do not escalate this war. We want peace, not World War III. Humanity depends on it.— Lex Fridman (@lexfridman) November 15, 2022
When you realise WWIII is imminent now that Russia “accidentally” sent a missile flying to Poland that’s part of NATO pic.twitter.com/qbsKcvR0VC— Adam (@FGRAdam) November 15, 2022
🧵 on the meaning of Russian strikes on Poland. This is a terrible development both for the loss of life & for what it tells us about the trajectory of Russia’s war. For those that have heard me speak on it, Russian strikes on NATO were an inevitability, in a long war scenario.— Alexander S. Vindman (@AVindman) November 15, 2022
BREAKING: Poland considers invoking NATO's Article 4 over alleged Russian missile strikes on its territory— Samuel Ramani (@SamRamani2) November 15, 2022
When you wake up from a power nap and see Poland, Russian missiles, and Article 5 with 2 dead trending. pic.twitter.com/W13hBi9iFw— monarch the great (@OneMonarchTwo) November 15, 2022
The amount of people clamoring for NATO Article 5 to be invoked over the Poland missile strike is pure insanity to me— Tony (@allthatyazzz) November 15, 2022
Cooler heads must prevail, World War III must be avoided
US officials have now noted that the missiles that hit Poland were indeed Russian and 2 people have been killed.— WarMonitor🇺🇦 (@WarMonitor3) November 15, 2022
The question is does Russia killing two people on nato territory evoke any sort of response.

RUSSIA SAYS THE MISSILE THAT HIT POLAND IS NOT FROM RUSSIA. RUSSIA ALSO SAYS THIS IS A DELIBERATE PROVOCATION BY THE UNITED STATES.
Poland. This is not a self-fulfilling prophecy. This is the reality we've been warning about. We were asking to close the sky, because sky has no borders. Not for 🇷🇺 uncontrolled missiles. Not for the threat they carry for our EU&NATO neighbours. Gloves are off. Time to win.— Oleksii Reznikov (@oleksiireznikov) November 15, 2022
Estonia tonight is with our NATO ally Poland, the one large country in Europe that understands why we Estonians are so committed to Ukrainian freedom.— toomas ilves a.k.a. @firstname.lastname@example.org (@IlvesToomas) November 15, 2022
When our friend and ally is attacked, Estonians stand shoulder to shoulder with you as you have stood with us.

⚡️ Czech Prime Minister: Confirmation of missiles hitting Poland would be ‘further escalation’ by Russia.— The Kyiv Independent (@KyivIndependent) November 15, 2022
“Today’s massive missile attacks by the Russian army on Ukraine clearly show that Russia wants to further terrorize its people and destroy the country,” Petr Fiala tweeted.
If it is an S-300 in Poland, it's probably Ukrainian air defense that went off course -- which makes sense with the huge onslaught of Russian barrages today and UA SAM interceptions. Russia has used S-300's for ground-to-ground strikes, but that'd be really far for them to use it https://t.co/Vvw482YbGz— Aric Toler (@AricToler) November 15, 2022
My condolences to our Polish brothers in arms. Criminal Russian regime fired missiles which target not only Ukrainian civilians but also landed on NATO territory in Poland. Latvia fully stands with Polish friends and condemns this crime.— Artis Pabriks (@Pabriks) November 15, 2022
poland please don't invoke article 5 i like existing and not being turned into radioactive dust pic.twitter.com/M3dinHhXQu— LucasTwocas (@LucasTwocas) November 15, 2022
Article 4 discussions will apparently take place tomorrow to discuss the missile(s) that landed in Poland.— Angry Staffer 🌻 (@Angry_Staffer) November 15, 2022
These consultations are important — they’ll discuss next steps. Response, preventative measures, etc.
They’ll also discuss if this warrants Article 5 (likely not). https://t.co/cq8kXjdjY8
I like eng.twitter writing: "please Poland, don't start WWIII" POLAND? Bitch, Russians are committing a genocide of Ukrainians for almost 9 monts and now they killed 2 Poles in Poland. By the way, which fucking WWIII are you even talking about? NATO destroying Russia is not WWIII— Mykola 🇺🇦 (official, not a parody) (@bloombeary) November 15, 2022

Poland asks for discussions under Article 4 which allows any NATO member to seek consultations so “the Parties will consult together whenever, in the opinion of any of them, the territorial integrity, political independence or security of any of the Parties is threatened.”— Kaitlan Collins (@kaitlancollins) November 15, 2022
