If it is determined that Moscow was at fault for launching the missile, it may invoke Article 5, in line with NATO’s principle of collective defense.

Now in this meeting, Poland can give evidence of the standards set to implement Article 5 with the member countries.
According to Article 4, any country can call such a meeting in case of danger, in which the implementation of Article 5 can be discussed.
If Poland succeeds in proving that this missile attack was done intentionally by Russia, then NATO can attack Russia with full force.

US President Joe Biden said that it may happen that this missile was not fired by Russia. According to a media report, Ukraine is also using Russian-made missiles and weapons on a large scale in the war.
