RIGA - Latvia is voicing its solidarity with Poland and will support any Poland's decision in relation with the necessary security and defense measures in the region, said Latvian Foreign Minister's aide Martins Dregeris when asked whether Latvia would support Poland's decision to trigger Article 4 of the NATO Treaty.

In Article 4 of NATO’s founding treaty, members can bring any issue of concern, especially related to the security of a member country, to the table for discussion within the North Atlantic Council.

As reported, Polish President Andrzej Duda said on Wednesday that a missile that killed two people on a farm near the Polish western border with Ukraine, most likely was a Ukrainian rocket.

He said that there was no evidence that it had been an intentional missile attack, and most likely the missile was fired as part of Ukraine’s air defenses.

Russia on Tuesday launched one of its biggest barrages of missiles yet against Ukraine. One of the missiles fell in the territory of Poland, killing two people. Initially there were reports that it might be a missile fired by Russia.
