Today, December 29, an unidentified object as of now entered the Polish airspace through the border with Ukraine.

From the moment it entered the airspace until it disappeared from the radars, its movement was tracked by the Polish air defense system. The Polish Armed Forces confirmed this information.

After detecting the object, the commander of the Polish Armed Forces took the necessary actions, deploying available troops and resources according to the established procedure.

Yuriy Ignat, a representative of the Ukrainian Air Forces, in response to reports of an unidentified object entering Polish airspace from Ukraine, noted that this is not a unique occurrence.

According to him, during a telethon, similar incidents, including the fall of missiles and drones on the territories of Romania and Poland, have already occurred in the past.

Ignat indicated that this is a consequence of intense attacks on the border regions of Ukraine, including the Lviv and Ivano-Frankivsk regions.

He emphasized that these incidents should serve as a signal to Ukraine's international partners about the need to strengthen the country with air defense means so that Ukraine can serve as a "shield" between the aggressor and Europe, providing protection both for itself and European countries.

On December 29, 2023, Russia carried out airstrikes on major Ukrainian cities, including Kyiv, Kharkiv, Dnipro, and Lviv.

The attacks, using drones and various missiles, led to significant destruction and casualties: 10 people died and about 60 were injured. In Kharkiv, the strikes claimed the life of one person and injured 11.

Ukrainian authorities noted the deployment of 9 Russian strategic bombers Tu-95MS, indicating the scale and coordination of the attack.

Ukraine's Prime Minister Denis Shmyhal and President Volodymyr Zelenskyy condemned the attacks, and it was also noted that about 122 missiles and 36 drones were launched.
