UK statement allows Kyiv to launch Storm Shadow missiles throughout Russia

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak expressed the opinion that Kyiv has the right to independently decide which objects on Russian territory are subject to strikes by stealth tactical missiles “Storm Shadow” and SCALP-EG. French President Emmanuel Macron has already given Ukraine carte blanche to use these missiles. Such a statement takes operational-strategic tensions in Europe to a new level.

In fact, Sunak confirmed support for attacks on rear military-industrial facilities in the European part of Russia. The SCALP-EG and Storm Shadow missiles have a range covering the Oryol, Lipetsk, Smolensk, Ryazan, Tula and Moscow regions. This statement underscores the importance of protecting key facilities deep within Russian territory.

In response to these threats, the priority task for the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) remains the separation of air defense-missile defense position areas and strengthening patrols in missile-hazardous areas using A-50U and A-100 Premier long-range radar detection and control aircraft (AWACS). The day before, the head of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Andrei Belousov, visited the command post of the Aerospace Forces, where measures to strengthen defense were discussed.
