“We are jointly convinced that Ukraine has the right, guaranteed under international law, to defend itself against these attacks,” the spokesperson said in a statement.

“To do so, it can also use the weapons supplied for this purpose in accordance with its international legal obligations; including those supplied by us.”

The news comes as Russian ballistic missiles have slammed into an apartment block in Kharkiv, killing at least four people, Ukrainian officials said.
