US State Department spokesman Ned Price said the United States does not encourage strikes against targets outside its territory.
“As President Joe Biden has stated, we do not encourage Ukraine to strike outside its territory and we do not encourage such strikes,” Price said.
He added: “We did not supply weapons to Ukraine for it to use to strike at Russia. We made it clear that these weapons are defensive in nature.”
And earlier, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported downed Ukrainian drones aimed at the airfields “Dyagilevo” in the Ryazan region and “Inglis” in the Saratov military district, resulting in the death of three Russian servicemen.
