Stoltenberg lays out case for NATO countries to loosen restrictions on Ukraine


NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg argued that countries that have provided military support to Ukraine should allow them to use those weapons to hit targets deep within Russian territory.

Over the course of the war, the United States, as well as other NATO allies, has restricted Ukraine from using its weapons to hit targets within Russia, though the U.S. loosened those rules a couple of months ago. There has long been a concern among Western countries about Russian escalation.

“The right of self-defense includes also the right to strike legitimate military targets on the territory of the aggressor, Russia,” Stoltenberg said during a Thursday afternoon press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who has made the same argument for weeks.
