EUA proporcionará a Ucrania miisles de largo alcance

By Jordi Bou

September 26, 2023 - El presidente Joe Biden ha decidido suministrar misiles de largo alcance ATACMS a Ucrania, dando a Kiev la capacidad de infligir daños a mayor distancia dentro del territorio ocupado por los rusos.

After nearly a year of rebuffing Kyiv’s pleas, the Biden administration intends to provide a version of the missile armed with cluster munitions rather than a single warhead, according to people familiar with the matter.

The cluster-armed ATACMS, with a range of up to 300km, could allow Ukraine to strike command posts, ammunition stores and logistics routes far behind Russian front lines and dug-in defences.

ATACMS are fired from the M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS), which has been efficiently used by Ukraine since last summer.

Theoretically, ATACMS could also allow Ukrainian forces to strike further targets on Russian soil, but Kyiv has pledged to use ATACMS only within Ukraine’s borders.
