Russia sends message with Yavoriv strike but attack on Poland unlikely
Analysis: proximity to Nato border may appear unnerving but steps have been taken to reinforce air defences
Russia’s deadly multiple missile strike on Ukraine’s military base in Yavoriv, less than 15 miles from the border with Poland, was clearly designed to send a message.
Not only can Russian forces strike the western limits of Ukraine, killing at least 35 people near where western arms will be crossing into the country, but the Kremlin does not care if US or other volunteer fighters were training there.
