US will send Ukraine ATACMS long-range missiles, Biden tells Zelenskiy -NBC

U.S. President Joe Biden has informed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy that Washington will provide Kyiv with ATACMS long-range missiles, according to NBC News. This information comes from three U.S. officials and a congressional official. Kyiv has been requesting Army Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS) from the Biden administration to help disrupt supply lines, air bases, and rail networks in Russian occupied territory. However, during Zelenskiy’s visit to Washington, the White House did not disclose any decision on ATACMS, despite announcing a new $325 million military aid package for Kyiv. The White House and Pentagon declined to comment on the NBC report and did not confirm whether any promise of ATACMS was made during Zelenskiy’s meetings. Zelenskiy, during a press conference in Ottawa, mentioned that the United States is the largest supplier of weaponry to Ukraine and that they are discussing various types of weapons with the United States. RushHourDaily had previously reported that the Biden administration was considering shipping ATACMS to Ukraine, which can fly up to 190 miles. ATACMS are designed for deep attacks on enemy forces and can target command and control centers, air defenses, and logistics sites behind the front line. Despite opposition from some Republican lawmakers, Biden publicly assured Zelenskiy that strong U.S. support for Ukraine’s war against Russian invaders will continue. Zelenskiy expressed gratitude for the latest package of weaponry, including air defenses, stating that it provides what their soldiers need.
