President Biden said that the missile killing two people in Poland on Tuesday was “unlikely” to have been fired from Russia.

Biden made the remarks on Tuesday night in Bali, Indonesia, while at the G-20 Heads of State and Government Summit. His comments follow a Russia-made projectile striking near the village of Przewodów, which is near the Ukrainian border, at 3:40 p.m. Tuesday, according to Poland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

He was responding to a reporter asking if the missile was fired from Russia.

“There is preliminary information that contests that. I don’t want to say that until we completely investigate – It’s unlikely in the minds of the trajectory that it was fired from Russia,” Biden said to reporters. “But we’ll see.”
