Nato foreign ministers who met in Bucharest on Tuesday expressed solidarity with Poland after two Polish civilians were killed by a stray missile in Przewodów, on Poland's southeastern border as Ukraine is fighting Russia's invasion.

"We stand in solidarity with Poland following the incident of 15 November that led to the tragic loss of life as a result of Russia's missile attacks against Ukraine," the diplomats wrote in a joint statement.

"We condemn Russia's cruelty against Ukraine's civilian populations and violations and abuses of human rights, such as forcible deportations, torture, and barbaric treatment of women, children, and persons in vulnerable situations. All those responsible for war crimes, including conflict-related sexual violence, must be held accountable. We also condemn all those, including Belarus, who are actively facilitating Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine," they added.
