Poland believes that Ukraine should have the right to use Western weapons to strike targets on Russian territory.

This was stated by the Deputy Minister of Defense of Poland in Brussels.

Deputy Minister of Defense Cezary Tomczyk emphasized that there should be no restrictions, acknowledging that few countries hold this position.

“Undoubtedly, the situation is such that Russia is doing whatever it wants today, while Ukraine is somehow being restricted by some countries, and this must stop. Poland’s position is clear – Ukraine should be able to fight with the equipment it receives, and Poland has no objections in this matter. Moreover, we also ask at similar meetings that these restrictions be lifted,” said the Deputy Minister of Defense.

It is worth noting that the occupiers began their offensive on Kharkiv from the neighboring Belgorod region, and some Ukrainian officials claim that the attack could have been mitigated if the Armed Forces of Ukraine were allowed to strike targets in this area of the Russian Federation.

So far, Washington has not agreed to lift the ban on using American weapons for strikes on Russian rear positions. However, a group of congressmen has called on the Pentagon to allow Ukraine to attack targets in Russia. Groups of congressmen from both parties have urged Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to permit Ukraine to strike with U.S.-supplied weapons on the territory of the aggressor country and to expand training for Ukrainians on American F-16 fighter jets.

The lawmakers believe that Ukrainians cannot effectively defend themselves due to the Biden administration’s policies, and this needs to change. The letter was signed by 13 congressmen.

Recently, the NATO Parliamentary Assembly called on allied countries to allow Ukraine to strike military targets in Russia with Western weapons. The signatories stressed that current efforts are insufficient for Ukraine’s victory, and thus NATO members should lift certain restrictions. The document was approved by the majority of over 200 lawmakers from all 32 countries.

Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala responded positively to NATO Secretary General’s call. “As a country under attack, Ukraine certainly has the full right to use all means of defense,” he said, describing this position as “simply logical.”

However, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni opposed this idea. “I don’t know why Stoltenberg said that; I think we need to be very cautious,” Meloni said.
