Russia said Ukraine had used British-made long-range missiles to target civilian sites in the eastern Ukrainian city of Luhansk, injuring six children.
The United Kingdom on Thursday became the first country to supply Kyiv with long-range cruise missiles that would allow them to attack Russian troops and deliver debris behind front lines.
“Air-to-air missiles from the Storm Shadow provided by Great Britain to the Kiev regime were used for the strike, despite London’s announcement that these weapons would not be used against civilian targets,” Russia’s Defense Ministry said.
Russia shot down two Ukrainian aircraft that fired the missiles – an Su-24 and a MiG-29.
