Ukraine asks US for long-range missile systems

Ukraine has sent a request to the United States for the supply of additional weapons, including long-range missile systems. This was reported on September 12 by The Wall Street Journal.

According to the publication, Kyiv “sent a signal” to Washington and other allies to ensure the supply of offensive weapons for 2023, drawing up a list of 29 items.

The list sent to US congressmen included ATACMS missiles with a range of up to 300 km, which the American side had previously refused to supply for fear that they would hit targets in Russia.

Ukraine also asked to be provided with tanks, drones, artillery, Harpoon anti-ship missiles and 2,000 shells for the HIMARS multiple launch rocket system.

Earlier in the day, the US administration called on the US Congress to approve additional assistance to Ukraine that had been requested earlier. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre clarified that more than $11 billion is in question.

Earlier, in August, a White House press secretary reported that since January 2021, the United States has provided Kyiv with military assistance, which is about three times the volume of Ukraine’s annual defense budget.

At the same time, Pentagon spokesman Pat Ryder said that since 2014, the United States has supplied Ukraine with weapons worth a total of $15.5 billion.

Moscow condemns the supply of weapons to the Ukrainian side. As Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov noted earlier, the North Atlantic Alliance is entering into a proxy war with Russia, supplying weapons to Ukraine. He noted that Western weapons supplied to Kyiv would be a legitimate target for the Russian military.
