Ukrainian forces have begun using long-range "Storm Shadow" missiles provided by the UK to strike Russian targets, two US officials and a Western official familiar with the matter told CNN Tuesday.
A spokesperson for the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense declined to comment.
The Storm Shadow is a long-range cruise missile with stealth capabilities, jointly developed by the UK and France, which is typically launched from the air. With a firing range in excess of 250km, or 155 miles.
CNN first reported last week that the United Kingdom had delivered multiple “Storm Shadow” cruise missiles to Ukraine, giving the nation a new long-range strike capability.
