Britain says it doesn't mind Ukraine destroying targets in Russia with British weapons

British Foreign Secretary David Cameron has made it clear that his country is not opposed to Ukraine using British weapons to strike Russian territory. He has promised about $3.74 billion in annual military aid to Kyiv "for as long as it takes."

This is what the official told Reuters when he recently visited the Ukrainian capital. It is emphasized that the announced aid package is currently the largest from London.

"We will give three billion pounds every year for as long as is necessary. We've just really emptied all we can in terms of giving equipment. Some of that (equipment) is actually arriving in Ukraine today, while I'm here," Cameron said.

In this context, he emphasized that the Ukrainian Defense Forces have the right to use the weapons provided by London at their discretion. That is, Britain does not object to strikes against the aggressor's military targets not only in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine but also inside the Russian Federation itself.

"Ukraine has that right. Just as Russia is striking inside Ukraine, you can quite understand why Ukraine feels the need to make sure it's defending itself," the British Foreign Secretary said.

The media reminded that in 2010 and 2016, David Cameron led the UK as prime minister, and returned to the forefront of politics only a few months ago. In Kyiv, he met with his Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba and President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

As previously reported, Latvian Foreign Minister Baiba Braže has recently hinted that Ukraine has every right to strike at Russian territory. She emphasized that some of Kyiv's Western partners are okay with the fact that the Defense Forces would do so with Western weapons.
