"We should allow Ukrainians to use weapons to hit missile launchers or airfields," Rinkevichs said on the sidelines of a meeting of foreign ministers of NATO countries in Bucharest.

According to him, the members of the alliance should not be afraid of the escalation of the conflict.

The minister is quoted by the Bloomberg agency.

NATO countries, among other weapons, supply Ukraine with artillery installations and shells for them, missile systems of volley fire and anti-ship missiles.

The range of their action usually does not exceed 100-120 kilometers.

However, there were no deliveries of tactical missiles and missile systems with a range of up to 300 kilometers, as well as attack and fighter aircraft.

  • The world media, citing sources, assumed that Washington was afraid of further escalation of the war between Russia and Ukraine.

    According to Rynkevich, several other NATO states also believe that Ukraine should not have restrictions on the choice of targets.

  • At the end of November, Reuters reported that the Pentagon is considering the possibility of transferring to Ukraine new high-precision GLSDB missiles with a firing range of up to 150 kilometers.

    Ukraine is asking Washington for MGM-140 ATACMS missiles for HIMARS complexes with a range of 300 kilometers.
