Military expert Ivan Stupak believes that within a few hours or days, the first results of the authorization to use the transferred weapons for strikes on Russian territory will be visible

He said this on the Espreso TV channel.

"Mr. David Cameron said back in early May that the UK was not against it. But I see that there is no political agreement from Downing Street. They are still on pause, watching the others. As for the United States and Germany, the situation has already become clear. We depend on these countries for long-range weapons," Stupak said.

The military expert recalled Germany's position on allowing the transferred weapons to be used for strikes on Russian territory.

"At first, Mr. Olaf Scholz objected. Then he said they agreed, but he said there was a confidential part. This means that there are restrictions on the use of these weapons. Perhaps it will be only three regions - Belgorod, Bryansk, and Kursk. Maybe it's distance or objects. That is, there are certain restrictions. The Americans have agreed, so there is tacit consent from the United States. I assume that within a few hours or days we will be able to see the first results of such a hit," Stupak added.

Which states allowed Ukraine to use its weapons on the Russian territory

On May 2, British Foreign Secretary David Cameron said that Ukraine has the right to use British weapons to strike at Russian territory. In response, Russia threatened to strike at UK military facilities.

On May 26, Swedish Defense Minister Pal Jonson said that Ukraine could use weapons provided by Stockholm to hit targets in Russia.

On May 27, the Parliamentary Assembly of the North Atlantic Alliance called on the governments of all NATO member states to allow Ukraine to use Western weapons to strike at Russian targets.

Later, French President Emmanuel Macron said that Ukraine has the right to strike military targets in Russia.

Subsequently, Polish Deputy Defense Minister Cezary Tomczyk said that his country supports Ukraine's right to use Western weapons to strike targets in Russia.

Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Estonia, the Czech Republic, and Finland also gave permission to use their weapons outside Ukraine.

On May 29, Canadian Foreign Minister Melanie Joly said that the country had not set any conditions for the use of weapons when providing Kyiv with them.

At the same time, the United States continues to restrict Ukraine's ability to use the weapons it has been given.

On May 30, Norway said that Western countries should allow Ukraine to use their weapons on Russian territory to speed up Kyiv's victory.

On the same day, Danish Foreign Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen said that Ukraine would be able to use Danish F-16 fighter jets to strike military targets in Russia.
