Ukraine needs the ability to strike Russian airfields and missile depots, from which strikes are carried out on Ukrainian civilian infrastructure, Latvia believes.

This was reported by the head of the Latvian Foreign Ministry, Edgars Rinkevičs, writes the Financial Post.

The minister added that NATO allied countries should not be afraid of escalation, and the Armed Forces can attack airfields on the territory of the Russian Federation.

Because it is from these territories that planes attack civilian infrastructure in Ukraine.

Despite the fact that the US has not imposed restrictions on the use of weapons by the Ukrainian army, it has so far refused to supply Ukraine with weapons with a sufficient range to strike Russian territory.

"Several other member states also believe that Ukraine should have no restrictions at all on how it uses weapons," Edgars Rinkevichs added.

Meanwhile, discussions are ongoing in NATO regarding the possible transfer of the Patriot air defense system to Ukraine.

At the same time, Poland called the probability of war with its participation extremely high.
