German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said he supports the position of US President Joe Biden regarding a ban on the supply of weapons to Ukraine, which can be used for strikes on Russian territory. He said this during a speech in Magdeburg, the Chancellor is quoted by T-Online.

Scholz recalled Biden's words on this issue and said that, in his opinion, other countries should adhere to the same position. “We will never act alone, but we will always be guided by what our allies are doing,” — he added.

The discussion about the possibility of the use of Western weapons by the Ukrainian authorities for attacks on Russian territory unfolded in the spring. Kyiv has repeatedly asked to provide him with the American MLRS HIMARS and MLRS to respond to strikes from the Russian army. At the same time, Washington refused such supplies, fearing that the Armed Forces of Ukraine could use them to shell Russian territory.

As a result, US President Joe Biden said that Washington would not provide Ukraine with weapons, capable of reaching Russian territory. He also said that the US would not directly enter into a conflict until they or their allies were attacked.

HIMARS systems were still sent to Ukraine, but the US provided them with projectiles of such range that they cannot threaten Russian territory.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov considered the US position reasonable. Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev argued that when attacking Russian cities, the military would strike “on the centers for making these criminal decisions.”
