In an interview with European Pravda on May 1, Latvian Foreign Minister Baiba Braze said some of Ukraine’s allies sent weapons to Kiev without a clause prohibiting Kiev from using them to carry out attacks inside its territory.

In January, Vice Admiral Oleksii Neizhpapa, commander of the Ukrainian Navy, signaled that Kiev would be able to win the war with Moscow faster if it were allowed to fire Western weapons at targets inside its territory.

Later, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that Ukraine has the right to use weapons provided by the West to defend itself against Moscow, including attacking targets within Russian territory.

`Russia’s war in Ukraine is a violation of international law. According to international law, Ukraine has the right to self-defense. And it also includes attacks against legitimate military targets, military targets

Russia has repeatedly criticized the West for transferring weapons to Ukraine, saying this move will only prolong the conflict.
