The War in Ukraine and the United States Question Long-Range Missiles: Stalemate in Atacms

The Biden administration is secretly debating whether to send long-range missiles to Ukraine. This was written by the New York Times, citing American and European sources, stating that they are Atacms missile systems equipped with guided cruise missiles with a range of more than 300 km. Kiev has long demanded these missiles, describing them as decisive for Russia’s defeat, but so far the United States has opposed sending them, arguing that the possibility of them reaching Russian territory or the Crimea peninsula poses a serious risk of escalation of the conflict.

Yesterday, during the NATO summit in Vilnius, France pledged to supply Kiev with long-range Scalp missiles, with a range of 250 kilometers, a weapon system similar to that of the Storm Shadows, which London delivered to Ukraine last May. Now, as revealed by the Times, Washington is considering whether to follow suit by sending Atacms with greater range. But the Pentagon warns that stockpiles of these missiles are relatively small and that shipping them to Kiev could jeopardize US security interests in other parts of the world.
