However, the US Department of Defense is now open to transferring longer-range ATACMS because the US military can now use the next-generation Precision Strike Missile, as US officials said.

They did not say, however, whether US President Joe Biden would approve the transfer of the ATACMS of this particular modification.

Background: The day before, the United States announced a US$300 million security assistance package to Ukraine – the first one in 2024 – amid blockages of additional funding in the US Congress.

Media reported that it would include long-range ATACMS missiles with a range of up to 160 kilometres.
