EUA envió en secreto misiles de largo alcance ATACMS a Ucrania

By Jordi Bou

April 25, 2024 - Ucrania ha empezado a usar misiles de largo alcance ATACMS – enviados discretamente por EUA – contra las fuerzas rusas. Las armas son parte de un paquete de ayuda aprobado de $300m por el presidente Biden en marzo.

The long-range missiles were used for the first time in the early hours of April 17, launched against a Russian airfield in Crimea that was about 165km from the Ukrainian front lines, Reuters news agency quoted an unnamed U.S. official as saying.

And the new missiles were also used in an attack on Russian troops in the occupied port city of Berdyansk overnight on Tuesday.

The U.S. previously supplied Ukraine with a mid-range version of the Army Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS) but had been reluctant to send anything more powerful, partly over concerns about compromising US military readiness.

However, Biden is said to have secretly given the green light to send the long-range system – which can fire missiles distances of up to 300km in February.
