Russian hoaxer “Macron” called Poland’s Duda over missile strike

“Polish President Andrzej Duda spoke to a hoaxer posing as France’s Emmanuel Macron on the night a missile hit a village near the Ukraine border. His office confirmed the call after two well-known Russian pranksters posted a recording of the caller asking Mr Duda who he thought was responsible. During the call Mr Duda said he was being ‘extra careful’ and wanted to avoid war with Russia. He was targeted shortly after the missile killed two people on a farm. The 15 November strike came during one of the biggest Russian missile barrages on neighbouring Ukraine since the start of the war. Poland said initially that the missile that landed in Przewodow, 6km (4 miles) from the border, was Russian-made but later added there were no signs of an intentional attack. Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said it was ‘most likely’ a Ukrainian air defence missile that landed in Poland.” (11/22/22)
