Britain backs Ukraine carrying out strikes in Russia, says minister
The Guardian says the UK backs Ukrainian troops carrying out strikes in Russian territory, the armed forces minister has said, calling it “not necessarily a problem” if Ukraine uses weapons donated by Britain.
James Heappey said the UK believed it was “completely legitimate” for Ukraine to identify Russian targets in Russia in order to disrupt attacks on Ukraine.
“Of course we do. The fact is that Ukraine was a sovereign country that was living peacefully within its owner borders and then another country decided to violate those borders and bring 130,000 troops across into their country,” he told Times Radio.
