Ukraine can “perfectly legitimately” carry out attacks on targets in Russia. Disrupting enemy logistics and destroying enemy warehouses is part of the war. This was stated by the Minister for the Armed Forces of Great Britain, James Hippie, on the air of Times Radio.

“The fact is that Ukraine was a sovereign country that lived peacefully within its borders, and then another country decided to violate these borders and send 130,000 troops into their country. This marked the beginning of the war between Ukraine and Russia, and in the war, Ukraine must strike deep into the enemy to attack his logistics lines, fuel supplies, ammunition depots, and this is part of the war, ”Hippie said.


According to him, "it is perfectly legal for Ukraine to aim deep into Russia in order to disrupt the logistics, which, if not disrupted, would directly contribute to the deaths and massacres on Ukrainian soil."


British Defense Minister Ben Wallace also said that Ukraine has every right to attack Russian territory. Accordingly, London is not opposed to using Western weapons for this.


Recall that on April 26 in Zaporozhye, two enemy guided missiles hit the territory of one of the enterprises of the city, the third exploded in the air. According to preliminary information, one dead and one wounded is known.

Aiden Eslin and Sean Pinner

Britain does not intend to enter into negotiations with Russia on the exchange of Viktor Medvedchuk for two British legionnaires who were captured in Mariupol, Cabinet Minister Brandon Lewis said in an interview with Sky News.

Lewis declined to confirm that the government was working to return British prisoners to the UK, explaining that he could not comment on "national security matters".


The minister also said about the citizens of Great Britain who were captured by the Russians, that "they should not have been there (in Ukraine)."


On the prospect of exchanging the British for Medvedchuk, who is currently detained by the Ukrainian special services, Lewis recalled that the process of imposing sanctions against people close to the Putin regime is underway, and in this context, "it is strange to think about how you can help Russia."


The Minister recalled that the government strongly discourages British citizens from traveling to Ukraine, even to help her in the conditions of the Russian invasion. He said that "the Armed Forces of Ukraine receive the support of the UK, and we will continue to provide this support."


On April 18, Russian television showed footage of British citizens Sean Pinner and Aiden Eslin allegedly taken prisoner in Mariupol.
