Biden considers to send Ukraine lethal long-range ATACMS weapons that could hit Russia

19th Feb 24 4:41 pm

The Biden administration are considering to send Ukraine long-range Army Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS) which will have the capability of hitting targets behind enemy lines.

This is of course, yet again dependant on Congress approving the vital military aid package to Ukraine, but Biden promised in a meeting in September 2023 that the US will provide a small number of ATACMS missiles.

The ATACMS which to date have not been supplied to Ukraine are deadly upon impact, which have a maximum range of around 300 km.

NBC News reports, citing unnamed American officials, “After months of requests from Ukrainian officials, the Biden administration is working toward providing Ukraine with powerful new long-range ballistic missiles. (…)

“Now, the US is leaning toward sending the longer-range version of the ATACMS missile.”

Defense Minister Rustem Umerov said that since they have lost the key city of Avdiivka, this strongly identifies the need for Ukrainian forces to be provided with more deadly long-range weapons.

The Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said that he has been in discussions for the potential delivery of the ATACMS variant with the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken as the Munich Security Conference.

Kuleba said in reference to the ATACMS, “There is only one way to destroy Russian capabilities in Ukraine.

“It’s to hit deep into the occupied territories, bypassing Russian radio-electronic warfare and interceptors.”

The US President Joe Biden has warned Congress that “history is watching” and has called for aid to be sent to Ukraine to beat Vladimir Putin.

Over the news of Alexei Navalny’s death on Friday, President Biden sad that he is “both not surprised and outraged by the news.”

Biden said, “Make no mistake, Putin is responsible for Navalny’s death” and it is “yet more proof of Putin’s brutality.

“This tragedy reminds us of the stakes of this moment. We have to provide the funding so Ukraine can keep defending itself.”

Hitting out at Congress he warned them that “history is watching the House of Representatives.”

Making reference to what Donald Trump said that the US will not defend some NATO countries for not paying if elected, he said that America will defend the alliance.

Biden said, “Putin and the whole world should know. If any adversary were to attack us, our NATO allies would back us, and if Putin were to attack a NATO ally, the US will defend every inch of NATO territory.
