The recent Ukrainian drone attack on Moscow, the United States has said that it is up to Kyiv to decide how to conduct this war. During a routine briefing on Monday (local time), US State Department official spokesman Matthew Miller said, “First of all. I’m not sure I agree with that interpretation of what ‘symbolic centres’ mean. I would say That we neither encourage nor enable attacks outside Ukraine’s borders…but as we have said many times, it is up to Ukraine how it conducts this war.”
He answered a media question regarding a recent statement by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that the war is now “returning to symbolic centres”. The reporter questioned whether the US administration supports that stance, particularly about “symbolic centers, which appear to be civilian targets”. Responding to the question, Miller said, “And when it comes to attacks… as you raised on civilian centers, it’s Ukrainian, civilian infrastructure has been targeted repeatedly.”
He said, “Ukrainian citizens have been murdered in this war. Schools, hospitals, apartment buildings… I could go on down the list.” Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky warned on Sunday that the war was “slowly returning to Russia”, saying it was an “inevitable, natural and fair process.” He stressed that Ukraine “is getting stronger.” Zelensky’s comments came after Russia shot down three Ukrainian drones. “Russian aggression has gone bankrupt on the battlefield,” Zelensky said, according to a statement released by Ukraine’s president’s office. Today is the 522nd day of the so-called “special military operation”, which the Russian leadership expects to last a week. The or two. Ukraine is getting stronger.”
“Gradually, the war is returning to the territory of Russia – to its symbolic centers and military bases, and this is an inevitable, natural and absolutely fair process,” he said. Ukrainian drones struck the Russian capital Moscow on Sunday morning, injuring one person, TASS news agency quoted emergency services as saying. “A security guard in the Oko-2 building was injured as a result of the explosion. The windows from the first to the fourth floors were broken as a result of the drone strike,” a source told TASS.
