Igor Zhovkva, deputy head of the office of the president of Ukraine, urged western countries to deliver long range missiles and fighter jets to Ukraine as he spoke to FRANCE 24 from Kyiv. He said Ukraine was counting on “positive results soon” and “believed in the united efforts of our partners in delivering weaponry to us”. Following repeated calls from Kyiv for more western heavy weaponry, several countries including the UK, US, Germany and Poland have now committed to sending tanks to Ukrainian front lines.

When asked about the prospect of using long-range missiles to target Crimea, Zhovkva replied that Kyiv has “all the rights to target any military targets on the territory of Ukraine”. The chief political adviser to Zelensky added, “we never aim at targeting anything not on the sovereign territory of Ukraine” and reiterated that “the borders of Ukraine as of 24 October, 1991 included Crimea as well”.
