US permits Ukraine to strike Russian targets with its weapons near Kharkiv

Kiev: US President Joe Biden’s administration has given Ukraine permission to strike certain areas inside Russia with US-provided weapons, the Ukrayinska Pravda media outlet reported, citing foreign media.

According to the report, Washington allowed Kiev to use US-provided weapons for counter-fire purposes and solely against sites near Russia’s border with Ukraine’s eastern Kharkiv region as quoted by Xinhua news agency report on Thursday.

The decision was adopted due to “worsening conditions” for Ukraine on the battlefield following Russia’s advances and improved position in the Kharkiv region, the report said.

The US policy regarding long-range strikes inside Russia has not changed and Ukraine was not given permission to use American weapons for attacks deep into Russia, it added.
