Jun 6, 2023

International law allows Ukraine to use Western weapons on the territory of the Russian Federation for self-defense.


German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius said this in an interview with DW during a trip to Indonesia, Ukrinform reports.

Answering a question about fears of the use of German weapons in Russia, he noted that international law allows this to be done in self-defense.

At the same time, he said, Germany has always emphasized that it does not want its tanks or other weapons to be used on Russian territory. Pistorius also noted that he had not received any signals from Kyiv about its intentions to go against Germany's wishes in this matter.

"I absolutely trust our Ukrainian partners," he added.
