“Russia attacked Ukraine, therefore Ukraine must be able to defend itself. It is clear that the weapons supplied by us are used only on Ukrainian territory,” said Olaf Scholz, according to the Tagesschau.de website, during a visit to Estonia.
At the beginning of the year, Olaf Scholz declared that he had reached a “consensus” with the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, on the obligation that the supplied weapons be used only on the territory of Ukraine, not in Russia.
Moscow denounced the attacks of the Ukrainian military forces on targets on Russian territory. Pro-Ukrainian fighters entered Russian territory a few days ago, in the Belgorod region, located on the border with Ukraine. Kiev has denied any involvement in this incursion, claiming that they are Russian insurgent groups opposing the Administration in Moscow. One Russian civilian was killed and 13 others were injured following attacks by the pro-Ukrainian group in the Belgorod region, according to Russian authorities.
The United States has long asked Ukraine not to use American weapons in attacks on Russian territory, said General Mark Milley, the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in Washington, against the background of Moscow’s accusations after the incursion into the Belgorod region. “The established rule with the Ukrainians is not to use US-supplied equipment to carry out attacks in the geographic space of Russia,” Milley said Thursday, at the end of the meeting of the Contact Group for the Defense of Ukraine. But the Washington Administration announced that it is analyzing the information about the alleged use of military vehicles of American origin in attacks committed on Russian territory. “We are verifying information about the possible use of American equipment and vehicles. We have made it very clear to the Ukrainians that we do not support the use of American equipment for attacks inside Russia,” said John Kirby, the National Security Council’s strategic communications coordinator at White House.
