US is preparing to approve the provision of long-range missile systems to Ukraine - CNN

The Biden administration is preparing to provide Ukraine with advanced long-range missile systems, which are now the main request of the Ukrainian side.

This was reported on Thursday by CNN with reference to several officials, writes "European Truth".

A new package of military aid may be announced next week.

In recent weeks, senior Ukrainian officials, including President Volodymyr Zelensky, have asked the United States and its allies to provide rocket-propelled grenade launchers. Weapons systems made in the United States can launch missiles hundreds of kilometers - much further than any of the systems already available in Ukraine.

Another system invited by Ukraine is a highly mobile artillery missile system known as HIMARS.

For several weeks, the Biden administration refused to send the systems amid fears in the National Security Council that Ukraine could use the systems to carry out offensive attacks on Russia.

The day before, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba asked the United States to decide on the provision of volley fire missiles (MLRS) as soon as possible.
