After last nights drone attack which impacted several suburbs of Moscow city and villages throughout Moscow Oblast, international supporters of Ukraine are sounding off.
UK Home Secretary Cleverly told press that Ukraine has “legitimate right” to “project power outside its borders”.
Speaking in Estonia, UK Foreign Secretary @JamesCleverly restates Ukraine's "legitimate right" to "project force beyond its borders to undermine Russia's ability to project force into Ukraine itself".
London far more bullish on Ukrainian attacks inside Russian than Washington.

This is a sharp departure from most Western nations who provided Ukraine the means to repel an invasion from the Russian Federation. While it is clear that last nights attack, which Kyiv has not claimed, did not explicitly target civilian infrastructure, Russian EW and ground based air defenses seemed to have brought the drones down on top of residential complexes.
However according to unconfirmed sources at the White House, the Biden Administration continues to hold the line that the U.S. only supports Ukraines claim to take back its sovereign territory.
According to pro-Russian TG page Bazabazon, below are all the confirmed wreckages of the UAVs from the attack:
“After the morning attack, fragments of six objects were found in different parts of the Moscow region. Among them are two UAVs and two projectiles. Here is the geography of their falls.
