WP: Biden is considering the possibility of Ukraine striking Russia

US President Joe Biden is considering two tough new countermeasures: punishing China for supplying key technologies to Moscow and allowing Ukraine to use US short-range weapons to attack Russia. Washington Post columnist David Ignatius reports.

The moves show the Biden administration is concerned about Ukraine's vulnerabilities on the battlefield and is seeking to bolster its defense capabilities. The consideration of these measures emphasizes the seriousness of Washington’s intentions in supporting Kyiv and countering Chinese-Russian cooperation in the military sphere.

What kind of short-range weapon we are talking about is not specified, however, experts do not rule out that Kyiv may be allowed to use HIMARS systems, including with ATACMS missiles.
