The U.S. dollar dropped against its major counterparts in the European session on Wednesday, amid receding geopolitical tensions following comments from U.S. President Joe Biden that missile strike in Poland is unlikely to have been launched from Russia.

Biden said that missile that hit the town of Przewodow in Poland may not have come from Russia.

The explosion killed two Polish civilians and Washington and its allies said they will conduct an investigation about the matter.

Poland's President Andrzej Duda said that although the missile was "most likely Russian-made," there was no concrete proof as to who fired it.

Russia's Defense Ministry denied involvement in the missile strikes and called them a "deliberate provocation."
