Letter: Drawing U.S. more directly into the Russia-Ukraine war is hardly desirable

(Finbarr O'Reilly | The New York Times) Smoke rises after a Russian missile attack on Kyiv, Ukraine, on Monday, Oct. 10, 2022. President Vladimir Putin of Russia ordered a far-reaching series of missile strikes against cities across Ukraine on Monday morning, hitting the heart of Kyiv, the capital, and other areas far from the front line in the broadest aerial assault against civilians and critical infrastructure since the early days of Moscow's invasion.

President Biden’s decision recently to allow Ukraine to use U.S. arms against Russian targets is a dangerous concern.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken said this is an effort to “adjust and adapt” to developments of the war.

It is unclear what he means and the decision is one that may draw the U.S. more directly into the conflict with Russia, something hardly desirable.
