William Muck examined the missile strike on Poland

By mid-November, world leaders were gathering together at the G20 summit in Bali, but their initial agenda was halted when a fellow NATO-member had been a victim of an attack. The leaders worked to diffuse a potential escalation in the months-long Ukraine war after an alleged “Russian-made” missile struck NATO-member Poland killing two people.

The missile landed outside the rural Polish village of Przewodow—about four miles west from the Ukrainian border—roughly the same time as Russia launched its biggest wave of missile attacks on Ukrainian cities in more than a month. After further investigation, it is believed that it was Ukraine who fired the Russian-made antiaircraft missiles in the NATO country.

William Muck, professor and chair of the political science department at North Central College, interviewed with WGN-TV to provide expertise on whether this missile strike could incite more violence or be the next “Cuban Missile Crisis”. Muck’s interview with WGN-TV was also shared on WGN-AM radio.
