The Polish stance was outlined on Tuesday by the spokesman for the foreign ministry in Warsaw, Łukasz Jasina, state news agency PAP reported.
Jasina said: “Most importantly, we do not have any information about any Polish citizens having been injured in this attack or in any other attack which took place on the territory of Ukraine today.”
He added: “This is good news.”
'We utterly condemn this attack'
Jasina told reporters: “Obviously, we utterly condemn this attack, and all the other attacks on Ukraine which happened today, including a strike on Vinnytsia.”
“We do not have any information suggesting that the attack was linked to the presence of [Polish Foreign] Minister Rau in Ukraine,” Jasina said.
“However, in the past, strikes have happened on the day of the visit of the Polish President [Andrzej Duda], for instance,” he added.
