Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Missile Blast in Poland Risked Russia-NATO Clash Before Both Sides Dialed Back

Ukraine air-defense likely fired the missile, officials said, and responses from Biden and the Kremlin showed a shared wish to avoid escalation

So, is Stoltenberg saying that NATO AA detected the missiles in flight and their crews made the conscious decision not to engage them? Or did they have advance warning from whoever fired the missiles, informing them of their lack of a hostile purpose in NATO airspace?

Honestly, even with all the great jokes and memes to come out of this otherwise tragic event (2 people reportedly dead after all) the explanation from Stoltenberg is the funniest shit that I have heard in connection with this whole affair.
