U.S. Still Says It Doesn’t 'Encourage or Enable' Strikes Outside Ukraine’s Territory

Sputnik cites Bild reporting that Kiev failed to notify Berlin of its use of a German-supplied Patriot air defense system “at least once to take action” against Russian targets. The strike was reportedly followed by “angry calls from Berlin and Washington and the threat to stop” supplying Kiev with anti-aircraft missiles if such an incident happened again.
