The head of Poland’s national security office, Jacek Siewiera, also told private broadcaster RMF FM that, to his knowledge, Duda was not opposed to the presence of Ukrainian observers at the scene.
kumoch said Poland had video evidence of the explosion.

“These are our normal photos from the border, where you can see certain things. You see planes over Ukraine, fighting over Ukraine, and at one point, in a very short time , you see a certain sequence of events,” he added.
