provision to develop “a mechanism” for intercepting Russian missiles & drones in Ukraine’s airspace

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is in Warsaw on Monday, where he signed a new security agreement with Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk.

Given that the sought-after admission into NATO has been on hold, Zelensky has been inking separate defense pacts with individual G7 and NATO countries, including Germany, the US, UK, France, and the EU. But there’s a key and unprecedented provision in this newest pact with Poland, centered on authorization for Polish forces to intercept inbound Russian missiles over Ukrainian territory.

According to the agreement, Ukraine has formally given its permission for such anti-air intercepts in the scenario where Warsaw believes a Russian rocket is headed toward Polish territory.


SO — how DO you tell the final destination of a missile when it’s in flight …… that’s sort of like Ukraine F-16’s flying out of Polish airfields – isn’t it??
