Polish President Andrzej Duda spoke via phone to a Russian prank caller who pretended to be French President Emmanuel Macron on the night a missile killed two people in a village near Poland’s border with Ukraine, according to Duda’s office. 

During the call, Duda reportedly insisted that he was being “careful” amid the controversy over the incident. 

The call lasted more than seven minutes, and a recording was later shared online by two Russian comedians, according to Reuters.

The missile garnered mass attention because it fell within the borders of a NATO member country. If the weapon had been fired by Russia at Poland, it could have escalated the conflict under NATO’s Article 5, which mandates that an attack on one member nation is to be considered an attack on the alliance as a whole.

But Stoltenberg said that, even if the missile was a Ukrainian error, Russia is to shoulder the blame.

“This is not Ukraine’s fault; Russia bears ultimate responsibility. The whole incident is caused by Russia’s brutal war in Ukraine,” the NATO leader said.
