Polish President Andrzej Duda checks the “elements” of NATO’s Article 4, spoke with Jens Stoltenberg

Polish President Andrzej Duda said in a tweet that he has spoken with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and is checking “the grounds for Article 4,” which allows member states to bring security concerns up for discussion.

The discussions come after Russian missiles crossed the border into Poland and killed two people, according to a US intelligence official who spoke to The Associated Press.

The two people were reportedly killed in the village of Przyudov, where a shell landed near the Ukrainian border.

Following the explosion in Poland, NATO ambassadors will hold a meeting on Wednesday at Poland’s request, according to Reuters.

The Pentagon also said it was studying the reports, but did not confirm that the missile killed two people in Poland.
