Kiev continues to attack targets in Russia with drones. Alarm sirens went off on Tuesday evening at the military airport already targeted in recent days, hundreds of kilometers from the border with Ukraine. The United States specifies that it has not supplied Ukraine with weapons to strike Russia and that the Biden administration is not encouraging Kiev to conduct attacks beyond its borders. Moscow excludes prospects for peace talks
Usa: «We have not given weapons to Kiev to strike Russia»
The United States has not supplied Ukraine with weapons to strike Russia, and the Biden administration is not encouraging Kiev to conduct attacks beyond its borders. This was underlined by US State Department spokesman Ned Price during a press conference. “We have not made it easier for Ukraine to strike beyond its borders. We are not encouraging Ukraine to strike beyond its borders,” Price said, reiterating that the weapons supplied by the United States are for “defensive” purposes only.
Pentagon: «We are not preventing Kiev from developing weapons»
“We are not preventing Ukraine from developing its weapons.” This was stated by the head of the Pentagon, Lloyd Austin, in a conference with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and their Australian counterparts in response to a question from CNN on the hypothesis that Washington is preventing Kiev from acquiring or developing long-term missiles range to attack in the territory of Russia.
