The US government does not support military attacks against Russia on its soil, a US State Department spokesman said on Tuesday night, following an early morning drone strike in Moscow attributed to Ukraine by Russia.
“In general, we do not support attacks inside Russia. We are focused on supplying Ukraine with the equipment and training it needs to reclaim its own sovereign territory,” a State Department spokesman told reporters on the sidelines of US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken’s visit to Sweden.
Earlier yesterday, the spokeswoman for the American presidency made an identical statement.
“We do not support attacks inside Russia, we have been very clear about that. Our emphasis is on giving Ukraine (…) the equipment and training it (its armed forces) need to take back its sovereign territory,” Karin Jean-Pierre said during a briefing of accredited journalists.
According to Russian authorities, several UAVs were shot down yesterday morning as they approached Moscow, three by electronic jamming and five by anti-aircraft defenses. However, others hit buildings, causing material damage. The Kremlin blamed Kiev, which officially denied it.
Asked specifically about this attack, Ms. Jean-Pierre said the White House was still “gathering information” about what happened, insisting that the American position had been “clearly” conveyed to the Ukrainian authorities but pointing out at the same time that the attack in Moscow was as Kiev suffered a seventeenth Russian airstrike yesterday.
