Russia is testing NATO's response — aviation expert on Russian missile in Poland
Kostyantyn Kryvolap, an aviation expert, believes that Russia was testing NATO's responsiveness by violating Polish airspace
He shared his opinions with Espreso TV.
"I have no doubt that this was a provocation by the Russians. Because the route is laid out before the missile's flight, the coordinates could not have gone astray. This is a test of the Poles and NATO on their responsiveness to such threats," Kryvolap said.
According to him, Russia wanted to see the country's reaction to provocations. Ukraine expected a more serious reaction from Poland.
"Ukraine expected some serious reaction, but there was none. It's a matter for the Poles and NATO, and we have to draw our own conclusions from this," he added.
- During a massive Russian air strike on Ukraine on the night of December 29, a Russian missile crossed Polish airspace. President Andrzej Duda held an urgent meeting with the military and talks with the NATO Secretary General.
- Poland does not rule out that the violation of airspace by a Russian missile on December 29 was a provocation.
