Latvian President Claims No “Rational Pragmatic Reason” To Restrict Ukraine from Bombing Russia

The NATO call for allowing Ukraine to strike targets inside Russia with NATO-supplied weapons was ridiculously echoed by Latvian President Edgars Rinkevics. He told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour yesterday that he absolutely agrees with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg that it is time for Ukraine’s allies to reconsider restrictions on the use of weapons provided to Ukraine. “This is quite a critical moment,” he said. “And I think that there is no rational pragmatic reason not to allow Ukraine to use those weapons against Russia in the way that is the most efficient (not even to avoid getting incinerated in a nuclear war?—ed.). And all those discussions that Russia may escalate, I think they are not grounded in a very sound assessment of reality. Why? Because Russia is already escalating.”
