UK approves strikes against Russia with Storm Shadow missiles without restrictions

New British Prime Minister Keir Starmer said that Ukraine has the right to independently decide how to use the British Storm Shadow cruise missiles transferred to it, including the possibility of attacks on Russian territory. This statement was made on the sidelines of the NATO summit in Washington, where issues of security and international cooperation were discussed.

Starmer emphasized that his position is consistent with the policy of the previous British government, which supported Ukraine in its struggle for territorial integrity and sovereignty. He noted that the decision on the use of transferred weapons should remain with the Ukrainian government, taking into account their needs and strategic goals.

“Ukraine itself must decide how to use the Storm Shadow cruise missiles transferred by the UK,” - said the British Prime Minister, answering a journalist’s question.

He added that London will continue to support Kyiv in its efforts to protect the country from aggression.

Storm Shadow missiles have a range of up to 560 kilometers, which poses a serious threat.
