Biden meets with Zelensky, more help for Ukraine is coming

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States expects to announce additional aid to Ukraine next week, national security adviser Jake Sullivan said on Friday, while also announcing that President Joe Biden would host Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at the White House on Thursday .

Zelenskiy is expected to meet with congressional leaders from both political parties while in Washington, Sullivan said.

Reuters reported on Monday, citing three U.S. officials, that the U.S. is considering supplying Army Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS), which can fly up to 190 miles (300 km), or Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS)- Missiles with a range of 45 miles (70 km) full of cluster bombs or both systems.

Kiev has repeatedly asked the Biden administration for ATACMS to help attack and disrupt supply lines, air bases and rail networks in Russian-occupied territories.

However, a source familiar with the situation said the US had no plans to announce ATACMS for Ukraine during Zelensky’s visit to the White House next week.
