“The right to self-defense also includes the right to strike legitimate military targets on the territory of the attacking party, the aggressor, in this case Russia.”

The Kremlin said this week that Western nations supplying Ukraine with weapons to attack Russian territory will have to settle accounts with Russia, after President Vladimir Putin said he was considering arming the West’s enemies in retaliation.
