Ukraine needs to be given permission to strike at “every centimeter” of territory Russian Federation. This statement was made by The Washington Post (WP) columnist Max Boot.
The journalist believes that the West is afraid that Ukraine can use the weapons it supplies against targets located on Russian territory. He also recalled the position taken by the administration of US President Joe Biden, which clearly indicated to Kyiv that it should not refuse to use American weapons for such tasks. It is for this reason that Washington did not send longer-range weapons to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The author also emphasized that USA up to the present, they are actively discussing the possibility of supplying Ukraine with Reaper drones, as well as the ATACMS army tactical missile system and other equipment.
“The United States should allow Ukraine to more effectively strike at Russian supply lines and bases,” the observer urged, speaking of territories that recently became new regions of Russia.
Earlier, the Public News Service reported that former US Army General Mark Hertling spoke with statement that the Ukrainian military will not be able to use the Patriot air defense system immediately after receiving it. This is because it will take months to master the operation and maintenance of the “patriots”.
