Poland's president, prime minister and senior security officials have discussed next steps after an unidentified air object entered the country's airspace from Ukraine on Friday morning, APA reports citing Radio Poland.

Prime Minister Donald Tusk said on the X social media platform he had discussed the incident with President Andrzej Duda, shortly after noon.

At twelve, Tusk convened a meeting with Defence Minister Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz, top commanders of the Polish Army and the heads of the country's internal security agency ABW, military intelligence service SWW and military counter-intelligence service SKW, over "information about a violation of Polish airspace."

Afterwards, the prime minister wrote on X that "we are all working together for Poland's security."

At 1 p.m., the president convened a meeting with the defence minister and army chiefs, to discuss the intrusion of an unidentified air object into the country's airspace from Ukraine.

It came after Polish Army's Operational Command said that on Friday morning an "unidentified air object has flown into Polish airspace from the direction of the Ukraine border, and was monitored by air defences until its signal died down."

They added that the incident "may be linked" to Russia's massive air attack on Ukraine overnight into Friday.
