Biden lifts restrictions on Ukraine using US weapons to strike Russian targets

US President Joe Biden has lifted restrictions on Ukraine using weapons supplied by the US against targets on Russian territory, but only to defend the under-fire Kharkiv region, a senior US official says.

“The president recently directed his team to ensure that Ukraine is able to use US-supplied weapons for counter-fire purposes in the Kharkiv region so Ukraine can hit back against Russian forces that are attacking them or preparing to attack them,” the official says on condition of anonymity.
