Ukraine has demanded from the USA to lift the ban on strikes on Russian territory

Against the background of the Russian army's advance in the Kharkiv region, Ukraine demands the United States allow American weapons to strike Russian territory. Politico writes about this, referring to Ukrainian officials. The publication notes that Washington, as a condition for sending long-range weapons to Ukraine, stated that they could not be used to strike Russian territory.

A group of Ukrainian officials is now in Washington to get congressional support and pressure President Biden's administration to lift the ban, writes Politico. The publication says the aim of the Ukrainian armed forces is to strike Russian military depots and push back the Russian Armed Forces' advance in the Kharkiv region.
