According to CNN, the US and Western authorities confirmed today, Tuesday, that Ukraine had started employing “Storm Shadow” missiles to strike Russian targets.
The “Storm Shadow” missiles, which would enable Ukrainian forces to attack Russian forces and supply depots far beyond the frontline, were unveiled by Britain on Thursday.
Long-range missiles have been requested by Ukraine for months, but only short-range weapons have previously been provided by Britain and other allies like the United States.
The British missiles, known as “Storm Shadow,” fall barely shy of the 185-mile range that Kyiv claims the ATACMS has.
The war’s course has shifted.
These missiles, which can go up to 500 km and have a range of 250 km, have the potential to alter the trajectory of the Ukrainian conflict.
With this gear, the Ukrainian army can destabilize the Russian front by attacking strategic sites behind the Russian positions’ backs. according to reports from the West.
