(ANSA) – WASHINGTON, MAY 30 – The US will not send (medium range) missile systems to Kiev that can reach Russian territory: President Joe Biden said.
In recent days, CNN had reported that the White House was preparing a new package of military aid that would also include medium / long-range missile systems.
These are the Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) and the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, also known as HIMARS, a lighter version of the former but capable of firing the same type of ammunition.
Both systems can launch rocket bursts of up to 300 kilometers at ground targets from mobile vehicles. So far beyond the Howitzers howitzers supplied so far, which have a maximum range of 25 kilometers, and Javelin anti-tank missiles or Stinger anti-aircraft missiles. (HANDLE).
