Hot on the heels of the announcement from the USA to supply Ukraine with long-range missiles the UK has now agreed to supply M270 multiple-launch rocket systems.
The latest announcement comes after Russian threatened to strike at the west if any of the long-range missiles are used to hit the Russian mainland.
Russia has also stepped-up attacks by striking Kyiv in the first assault on the Ukrainian capital in weeks. Russian strategic bombers fired missiles from as far away as the Caspian Sea.
Russia has claimed that the strikes were aimed at tanks and other armor that has been donated by the west, the claim has not been confirmed by Ukraine at the moment. However, the Russian Defence Ministry stated on Telegram that high-precision, long-range air-launched missiles were used to destroy T-72 tanks supplied by Eastern European countries.
Reports are coming in that Russia also struck railway facilities and other infrastructure during the Kyiv bombing
