It is reported The Wall Street Journal.
According to the source, the administration of US President Joe Biden is getting closer to handing over ATACMS missiles to Ukraine. It is quite possible that this will happen already in the fall.
Officials have shared information that the Pentagon wants to transfer a limited number of missiles to Ukraine to reduce concerns about excessive use of American stockpiles.
Previously, the USA had already received guarantees that Ukraine would not use the provided weapons for strikes on the territory of the Russian Federation. According to the WSJ, any ATACMS enforcement provisions would depend on such a promise.
- On August 7, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba had a telephone conversation with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and emphasized the need for ATACMS for the Armed Forces.
- On September 9, it became known that the USA may transfer missiles to Ukraine in the following aid packages.
- On September 12, it was reported that the Biden administration is close to approving the supply of longer-range missiles to Ukraine, which are immediately equipped with cluster munitions
