Ukraine has pledged not to use US precision-guided weapons, including HIMARS, against targets in the Russian Federation.

It is reported by the BBC.

"It's true, I don't hide it. We committed that we would not use high-precision weapons against Russian facilities on the territory of the Russian Federation. We have proved this everywhere, even I personally wrote this in a letter addressed to my colleague - the head of the Pentagon - that we will use American weapons to deter the enemy and de-occupy temporarily occupied lands only on the territory of Ukraine," the minister said.

According to him, he was asked if the ban applies to Crimea.

"He asked me the same thing. I said that we have enough strategic facilities in the Ukrainian territories occupied by Russians. To which he answered me: we understood you," Reznikov added.

He also commented on whether a land attack from the territory of Belarus is possible.

"I already made a prediction that I did not believe there could be a bombing by the Russians, and, unfortunately, I was mistaken. Therefore, everything is possible; there is such a risk. But I hope that in this period - no, there is no such risk ", - said Reznikov.
