Ukraine deploys long-range missiles supplied by US for the first time

Ukraine has started using long-range ballistic missiles provided by the United States, striking a Russian military airfield and forces in occupied areas. The new missiles provide double the striking distance, with the U.S. providing more in a military aid package signed by President Biden. The delivery was done quietly, with lawmakers unaware that the weapons were already in Ukraine. The White House and military planners decided that now was the right time to provide long-range fires to help Ukraine take out Russian logistics nodes. The U.S. had resisted sending these missiles out of concern for escalating the conflict with Russia. Ukraine’s use of the weapons came after delays in U.S. foreign aid funding, leading to shortages in artillery and air defense systems.
