The new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Keir Starmer, has said that Ukraine can use British Storm Shadow missiles to strike military targets in Russia. By doing so, he confirmed that he would continue the previous UK government's policy of using long-range weapons in the Russian-Ukrainian war.

He was speaking to journalists on his way to the NATO summit in Washington on Tuesday evening. Asked by a Bloomberg reporter, Starmer agreed that it was up to Ukraine to decide how it would use the UK-provided Storm Shadow missiles. 

According to him, the missiles should "obviously be used in accordance with international humanitarian law, as you would expect".

"But it's up to Ukraine to decide how to use them for those defensive purposes," Keir Starmer said.

Commenting on Russia's attack on the Okhmatdyt children's hospital in Kyiv, Starmer said it was "an absolutely shocking, horrific attack" that provided "a very important, albeit tragic, backdrop to this summit." "It's everyone's duty to describe it that way," he added.

"My message to President Putin is this: this NATO Summit should be seen as a clear and united resolve of the Allies across NATO and beyond to support Ukraine and stand up to Russian aggression," the UK Prime Minister stressed.
