Earlier, President Zelensky expressed hope that Kyiv will receive these weapons this fall
The State Department said that the US position on the supply of long-range ATACMS missiles to Ukraine has not changed.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in an interview with CNN over the weekend that he expects and hopes that Kyiv will receive ATACMS missiles this fall. Until now, the US has refused to supply these missiles.
US State Department spokesman Matthew Miller was asked whether the US position on this issue had changed.
“It hasn’t changed,” he replied. “We always evaluate the military assistance that we can provide to Ukraine both from the point of view of what is appropriate to supply at the moment, and from the point of view of what we can provide, what our allies and partners who are part of this coalition can provide.” .
“This is an issue that we continue to review, but there has been no change yet,” Miller further said.
“We are in constant negotiations with our Ukrainian colleagues, as well as within the US government,” Miller said. “But we don’t have any new position to announce at this time.”
