The US to send advanced weapons system to Ukraine: Report

Published:

As Russia continues its offensive in Ukraine, the US is reportedly planning to supply Zelensky’s government with advanced surface-to-air missile systems and additional artillery.

According to the Associated Press, the United States may send an anti-aircraft system, including radars, to Ukraine.

According to reports, Ukrainian forces are set to withdraw from the strategic city of Severodonetsk as Russian forces continue to advance in eastern Ukraine.

The US had previously announced a $1 billion arms package for Kyiv. The Biden administration has already sent anti-tank missiles and drones to Ukraine.

Russia declared that it would concentrate its forces in eastern Ukraine after withdrawing from the Kyiv area amid fierce fighting with Ukraine’s Army.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Monday that NATO allies will increase their troop levels to “well over 300,000” to respond to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

President Emmanuel Macron’s government announced earlier this month that it will send six more Caesar long-range howitzers to Ukraine.

US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin urged Western allies to increase arms supplies to Ukraine, citing President Zelensky’s repeated requests for heavier weapons to combat Russian forces.
