UKRAINE, July 10 — British Prime Minister Keir Starmer, who arrived in Washington for the NATO summit, assured that Ukraine could use British Storm Shadow missiles to strike Russian military targets, Bloomberg reported.

Some European countries, such as France, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, the Netherlands, and others, have already authorized Ukraine to use their weapons against Russia, but America is still “hesitating.”

Keir Starmer also said that Ukraine should decide how to use the Storm Shadow missiles [precision-guided cruise missiles with a range of over 155 miles] provided by the UK.

He also promised to continue the previous government’s policy of providing and using long-range weapons in the Russian-Ukrainian war to strike Russia.

The prime minister added that Ukraine must use the missiles following international humanitarian law.

This is the first time that the UK has explicitly stated that it allows Ukraine to use its weapons to strike throughout Russia.
