Russia Ukraine war: US to send advanced rocket system to Ukraine

Correspondent

Advanced rocket systems are to be used “on the battlefield in Ukraine” – that’s the pledge from President Biden as he reversed America’s previous stance and agreed to supply Ukraine with weapons with a range of nearly 50 miles.

The president insisted he was not “encouraging or enabling” Ukraine to strike beyond its borders but the Kremlin accused America of adding fuel to the fire.

Ukraine’s military hope it will help them hold the line in the east of the country and the onslaught.
