Ukraine war: Macron, Scholz agree Kyiv should use allies’ weapons against launchers in Russia

Source: The Guardian [UK]

“Ukraine should be allowed to use its allies’ weapons to ‘neutralise’ Russian military bases used to fire missiles into Ukraine, France’s president, Emmanuel Macron, said on Tuesday. But he added: ‘We should not allow them to touch other targets in Russia, and obviously civilian capacities.’ Macron commented during a state visit to Germany, whose chancellor, Olaf Scholz, appeared to back Ukraine on the matter as well – saying he agreed with the French president as long as the Ukrainians respected the conditions of the weapons’ suppliers. The chancellor has however refused to supply Germany’s Taurus cruise missiles – sought by the Ukrainians and capable of powerful strikes on Russian positions inside Ukraine and deep into Russia.” (05/29/24)
