The Ukrainian ambassador has been called by Belarus, which claims to have shot down a Ukrainian air defense missile on its soil. It took place during one of Russia’s most intense aviation assaults on Ukraine to date. State television footage from Belarus appeared to show missile debris in a field.

The event, according to a military spokeswoman for Ukraine, was “the outcome of air defense.” After the S-300 rocket crashed close to the border, Belarus, a significant ally of Russia, urged that Kiev conduct a thorough inquiry.

Since the Russian incursion in February, Belarus has never before shot down a missile intended for Ukraine. The Minsk foreign ministry summoned the Ukrainian ambassador.

Belarusian spokesperson Anatoly Glaz informed the news agency Reuters that “the Belarusian side regards this situation as quite serious.”

To “take thorough measures to prevent the repetition of such occurrences in the future,” he urged Ukraine.

Inviting experts from nations that do not support “the terrorist state of Russia” to assist with the investigation into the incident, the Ukrainian defense ministry said it was prepared to do so. It also reserved “the unequivocal right to the defense and security of its own skies.”

It declared that it had not ruled out the possibility of a “deliberate provocation” in which Moscow fired its cruise missiles over Belarusian territory in order for them to be shot down.

According to Belarus, the missile landed close to the village of Harbacha in the Brest region, around 15 kilometers (9 miles) from the Ukrainian border.

“Our windows were shaking and the house was trembling from what must have been a sound wave,” a witness told Radio Free Europe. Oleg Konovalov, the military commissar for the Brest area, tried to minimize the situation.

In a video that was shared on social media, he remarked, “Unfortunately, these things happen.

He compared it to a recent incident in which a missile hit Poland and killed two people. The air defense of Kyiv was “most certainly” to a fault, according to Nato commander Jens Stoltenberg, but Ukraine rejected this.

Belarus, which has strong ties to Russia, gave Moscow permission to launch the invasion of Ukraine from its soil in February.
