Washington. America in no way aids or abets attacking Ukraine from within Russia. The US State Department said on Tuesday that the United States was not providing the weapons or equipment needed to attack Ukraine from beyond its borders. However, Ukraine has clearly demonstrated a new capability to strike hundreds of kilometers into Russian airspace with airstrikes on 3 airbases hundreds of kilometers inside Russia.
US State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters that “we do not allow Ukraine to attack beyond its borders.” We don’t even encourage Ukraine to cross its borders and attack. Ned Price also said that it has not been confirmed that these attacks were carried out by Ukraine. Price said the United States did not supply Ukraine with weapons that are used for attacks inside Russia. Separately, Moscow said three of its soldiers were killed and four injured in attacks on its two airbases on Monday. Along with this, two warplanes were also damaged. While on Tuesday, another drone attack on a third Russian air base in Kursk set fire to an oil depot.

This airbase is close to Ukraine. The Kyiv government did not directly take responsibility for these attacks, but their success was nonetheless celebrated. On Tuesday, officials in the Russian city of Kursk, about 90 km (60 miles) north of the border with Ukraine, released images of black smoke over an air base. An oil storage tank was said to have caught fire due to the drone attack, but there were no casualties. Significantly, a day earlier there had been drone attacks on Engels air base hundreds of kilometers from Ukraine and on Ryazan, the base of Russia’s strategic bomber fleet. Ryazan is only a few hours from Moscow.
