Russia accuses US of direct involvement in Ukrainian attacks

Moscow, Jul 8 (Prensa Latina) Ukraine's attacks on Russian territories using long-range missiles would not be possible without the direct participation of the United States, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stressed.

The foreign minister gave an interview to the Rossiya 1 television channel on Monday in which he noted that the missiles would not fly anywhere without the direct participation of the US military in aiming the weapons or providing satellite data.

On June 29, the Ukrainian Army attacked the city of Sevastopol, in the southwest of the Crimean peninsula.

Five ATACMS missiles loaded with cluster ammunition, supplied to Ukraine by the US, were launched that day, four of which were intercepted.

The fifth missile was damaged and detonated mid-air over a beach, killing four people, including a two-year-old baby and a nine-year-old girl, and injuring 153 bathers, 27 of them minors.
