TRIBUNNEWS.COM – Russia’s missile attack on a Ukrainian military base near the Polish border on Sunday (13/3/2022) is considered a threat to NATO.
This was stated by Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland Marcin Przydacz, Monday (14/3/2022) as reported BBC.
At least 35 people died after Moscow forces bombed the Yavoriv military training base.
The target of this Russian attack is about 20 km from the Polish border, a member of the NATO alliance.
Speaking on the BBC Radio 4 programme, Przydacz said Russia’s move was “very provocative”.

“They must have known this military base was stationed very close to the Polish border,” he said.
“So of course the Russians know what they are hitting and they want to threaten NATO. They want to send a message that threatens NATO.”
The Deputy Foreign Minister admitted that he was worried that Poland would become the next target of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Poland is one of the countries where Ukrainian refugees have fled the war zone.
Poland’s Border Guard Agency says more than 1.75 million people have fled Ukraine for Poland since the invasion began.
