Ukraine demands Washington lift restrictions on ATACMS missile strikes

The Ukrainian military has asked the United States to lift restrictions on the use of long-range missiles to strike Russian territory, sources told The Associated Press. According to the agency, Washington has not yet allowed Ukraine to use ATACMS missiles for attacks deep into Russian territory.

ATACMS missiles provided by the United States are considered one of the most effective weapons for hitting distant targets. However, at the moment their use is limited. The United States allowed the use of these missiles only for strikes to a depth of up to 20 km from the border in the Kharkov region. This restriction was introduced in order to minimize the risk of escalation of the conflict and avoid direct involvement of the United States in hostilities on Russian territory.

At the same time, the United States notes that it allows its weapons to be used to destroy any targets in the areas from which attacks are launched.
