Ukrainian forces have already begun using UK-supplied Storm Shadow cruise missiles to strike Russian targets, CNN reported on May 16, citing several Western officials familiar with the matter.

At the same time, Ukrainian Defense Ministry has refused to comment on this.

Storm Shadow is a long-range cruise missile developed jointly by the UK and France, typically air-launched.

On May 11, CNN reported that the UK had already supplied Kyiv with several Storm Shadow missiles capable of striking targets at a distance of over 250km. Later, UK Defense Minister Ben Wallace confirmed that London was transferring the missiles to Ukraine, emphasizing that they would be used on the country's sovereign territory.
