The Pentagon will determine targets in Russia that Kyiv will be allowed to hit with American weapons

11

The United States is thinking about where the Ukrainian Armed Forces will strike after the White House gives permission to use American weapons to hit targets outside the combat zone. According to The New York Times, the decision made in Washington will be limited by special recommendations from the Pentagon.

NYT reports that US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has instructed the commander of NATO's allied forces in Europe, General Christopher Cavoli, to develop recommendations determining for what purposes the Armed Forces of Ukraine can use American weapons. Thus, the Pentagon once again emphasizes who makes decisions in Ukraine.



According to the publication, the United States is still afraid of the Russian president’s reaction to the decisions taken to expand Kyiv’s rights to use transferred weapons.

How will Russia react to attacks using American weapons on its territory? It's impossible to know exactly where Russian President Vladimir Putin will draw his red line

- says the publication.

According to the NYT, for now Kyiv is allowed to use weapons from the United States only to defend Kharkov and prepare a possible counter-offensive to return the territories liberated by the Russian army. However, the Biden administration does not rule out that if the Russian Armed Forces expand the geography of attacks, the restrictions may be eased.

Recall Washington allowed use transferred HIMARS MLRS systems to shell Russian border regions. The formal ban on the use of ATACMS missiles for strikes outside the regions of Novorossiya remains in place for now.

    Russia should be ready for anything including the worst case scenario and NOT trust anything coming from the west now that the west can hide behind the ukronazis in kiev to attack Russia.

      It is not “ALLOWED” by the Pentagon, but it will be ORDERED by Washington/Pentagon to hit the Armed Forces of Ukraine with American weapons against Russia!!!

    This is what it means to not respond to challenges and provocations from the West in a timely manner, they are already cynically mocking us, even the lowly mongrels have sensed our weakness and cowardice, and because we are responsible and do not want a third world war, therefore we will not answer them, but Consequently, we will be hit progressively, right up to kicks in the head. It will soon come to the point that if you don’t hit Russia, that means you’re a weakling...

    Sanctions! Everyone is shouting sanctions. Where are they? We give them resources through third parties, and they give us high-tech products: batteries, microcircuits, logic, engines, GPS, etc. All this is good to us without customs duties and long trade negotiations. Oh, I forgot, in addition, a product of the modern chemical industry - an explosive, but all this is for us. There are no sanctions.

    The General Staff of the Russian Federation “allowed” the Houthis (Yemen) to fire “Iranian” missiles at an American nuclear aircraft carrier. Hehemon silently grimaced from the slap and remains silent...

    The Pentagon defines goals, NATO is planning the occupation of Western Ukraine, NATO “instructors” in Ukraine ensure the use of high-precision and long-range weapons, they will sit at the controls of Ukrainian F-16s, Norwegian aviation is prepared to use nuclear weapons, a nuclear strike on Russia is practiced at NATO exercises, etc. . Who is the director and choirmaster of these dances with tambourines? Isn't it time to give Yellowstone a little tickle?
