US President Joe Biden Considering Sending Long-Range Missiles to Ukraine

The United States is considering sending long-range missiles equipped with cluster bombs to Ukraine in response to the ongoing war with Russia, according to officials.

Exploring Missile Options

Following the successful use of cluster munitions in 155 mm artillery shells, the US is contemplating sending either the Army’s Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS) or the Multiple Launch Rocket System to Ukraine. The ATACMS can fly up to 190 miles (306 km), while the GMLRS missiles have a range of 45 miles and are loaded with cluster bombs.
