The chief of NATO engaged in some saber-rattling recently, appearing to sign off on Ukraine using Western armaments within Russia, according to a new report by Breitbart:

“With the United States reportedly reconsidering its ban on Ukraine using American weapons against targets within Russia, Jens Stoltenberg said that the escalation is justified and likely necessary in order for Kyiv to deter further aggression from Moscow as it seeks to gain further ground within the former Soviet state.

“’I think the time has come for allies to consider whether they should lift some of the restrictions they are put on the use of weapons they have donated to Ukraine because, especially now when a lot the fighting is going on in Kharkiv, close to the border,’ Stoltenberg told The Economist.

“’To deny Ukraine the possibility of using these weapons against legitimate military targets on Russian territory makes it very hard for them to defend themselves.’

“The outgoing NATO chief argued that Russia is waging a war of aggression. Therefore Ukraine has the right to defend itself ‘and that includes also striking targets on Russian territory.'”
