Pentagon confirms previous secret missile shipment to Ukraine

We are now learning that the US quietly gave long-range missiles to Ukraine earlier this year.

The Pentagon is now admitting that it gave Army Tactical Missile Systems or ATACMS to Ukraine last month after previously refusing to do so in February.

National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan says the administration chose to provide the missiles after North Korea gave missiles to Russia and in light of increased production in the US.

The ATACMS were part of a $300 million aid package the Pentagon announced in mid-March. No announcement was made at the time to “maintain operational security for Ukraine at their request.”
