To counter Russia's advance in Ukraine, US President Joe Biden is considering two new countermeasures: punishing China for having supplied key technology to Moscow and, above all, «lifting limits on Ukraine's use of US short-range weapons to attack inside Russia .

The Washington Post claims it. The fact that such initiatives are now being taken into consideration, the newspaper underlines, demonstrates the US administration's growing concern for Ukraine's vulnerability on the battlefield .

If Joe Biden thinks about it, the Polish government has already removed all limits on the weapons supplied to Kiev , which, announced Deputy Defense Minister Cezary Tomczyk, " can be used to attack structures on Russian territory ". Prime Minister Donald Tusk announced the restoration of a buffer zone on the border with Belarus on a strip about 200 meters wide from the state border. Tusk announced the use of "all necessary resources" to secure the border.

Helsinki also places no limits on the use of weapons supplied to Kiev . Foreign Minister Elina Valtonen : «Finland has not placed any special restrictions on its aid to Ukraine, but assumes that the material is used in accordance with international law. Russia is waging an illegal war of aggression in Ukraine, and Ukraine has the right to self-defense under Article 51 of the United Nations Charter. This also includes attacks against military targets in the attacker's territory that are necessary for self-defense."
