US to send Ukraine longer-range rockets in latest aid package – BBC News

The US will send Ukraine more advanced rocket systems to help it defend itself, President Joe Biden has announced.

The weapons, long requested by Ukraine, are to help it strike enemy forces more precisely from a longer distance.

Until now, the US had refused the request out of fear the weapons could be used against targets in Russia.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the US was “directly and intentionally adding fuel to the fire” with its weapons deliveries to Ukraine.
