A debate is raging within the White House about the possibility of Ukraine firing American weapons at Russia

Since the first US shipments of advanced weapons to Ukraine, US President Joe Biden has never wavered on one ban: Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy had to agree never to fire them on Russian territory, with Washington insisting this would be a violation of Biden’s mandate to “avoid the guns.” Third World War.”

But the consensus around that policy is crumbling. Spurred by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, there is now a vigorous debate within the government about relaxing the ban to allow the Ukrainians to attack missile and artillery launch sites just across the border in Russia. Goals that, according to Zelensky, have made Moscow’s recent territorial gains possible.

The proposal, which US Secretary of State Antony Blinken pushed for after a sobering visit to Kiev, Ukraine, last week, is still in its early stages, and it is not clear how many of his colleagues from Biden’s inner circle have signed on reported. It has not yet been formally presented to the president, who has traditionally been the most cautious, officials said.
