The Joe Biden administration, which has previously refused to supply Ukraine with weapons needed for strikes against Crimea, which is used by Russia as a base for strikes, is ready to reconsider its position, according to the American edition of the New York Times.

The publication, citing its sources, writes that the White House is beginning to understand that Kyiv may need weapons to strike at the Crimean bases, where there are about 70 thousand Russian troops, even if this increases the risk of escalation.

The publication says that the Biden administration came to the conclusion that if the Ukrainian military can make it clear to Russia that it may lose control in the Crimea, this will strengthen Kyiv’s position in future negotiations.

Sources of the publication also noted that Washington believes that the risk of the Kremlin using tactical nuclear weapons has also decreased.
