Ukraine will not hit Iskander launchers in Russia with Western-provided weapons – Air Force spox

Ukraine will not hit Iskander launchers in Russia with Western-provided weapons – Air Force spox

Ukraine cannot launch strikes on Iskander ballistic missile systems located in Russia with Western-provided weapons because this would violate Ukraine’s commitments to international partners, Ukrainian Air Force spokesman Yurii Ihnat said in a comment to Ukrinform.

“We do not attack targets inside Russia. As the state leadership says, there is a strategy – we promised our partners not to attack [targets inside Russia] with the weapons provided to us,” Ihnat said, adding that Ukraine will use any available weapons against Russian missile positions in the temporarily occupied territories

Early on 1 June, Ukraine’s air defense systems downed seven Iskander-M ballistic missiles and three Iskander-K cruise missiles that Russia fired at the Ukrainian capital city of Kyiv. The Russian attack on Kyiv killed three and injured 16 civilians.
