U.S. position on Ukrainian strikes inside Russia unchanged - Biden

The United States has not yet given Ukraine any permission to use U.S.-provided weapons to strike targets inside Russia located far from the front line.

U.S. President Joe Biden said this at a joint press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukrinform reports.

"It is clear that along the Ukrainian-Russian border it makes a lot of sense for Ukraine to be able to take out or combat what is coming across that border. In terms of long-range weapons […] we have not changed our position on that," Biden said.

In late May, U.S. President Joe Biden gave Ukraine permission to use U.S.-made weapons to strike military targets inside Russia, but this permission applies only to the area of Kharkiv.
