Ukraine won’t strike Russia’s Iskander launch sites with foreign weapons due to promises to partners


“We don’t attack targets on Russian territory,” he said.

“As the state leadership says, there is a strategy – we promised our partners not to attack with the weapons provided to us.”

If, however, missiles are launched from the temporarily occupied territories, Ukraine will use all other available weapons to destroy them, Ihnat said.

Russia has a shortage of Iskander missiles, otherwise they would have used far more, he said.

“If they hadn’t spared them, they would have used them in their hundreds.”

Three people were killed, including a 9-year-old girl, and at least 11 were injured after invading Russian forces attacked the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv with the Iskander ballistic and cruise missiles overnight on June 1.

Fragments from downed missiles fell in three of the capital’s districts on the left bank of the Dnipro River – Dniprovskyi, Desnianskyi, and Darnytskyi.

Witnesses said that residents of Kyiv’s Desnianskyi district had likely been killed in the strike because a bomb shelter in the local children’s polyclinic had been closed.
