Ukraine does not need missiles with a range of 300 km - Pentagon
The Pentagon said that at the current stage of the war, Ukraine does not need ATACMS missiles with a long range.
Colin Kahl, Deputy Chairman of the Pentagon, stated this at a briefing.
In our estimation, they do not currently need ATACMS to serve purposes directly related to the current struggle. Obviously, we will continue to discuss with the Ukrainians their needs, but for now we should focus on GMLRS, not ATACMS, said Colin Kahl.
Colin Kahl also said that all the current tasks of Ukraine, to destroy enemy targets, are carried out by GMLRS missiles (range of destruction up to 84 km - ed.).
The Russians have indeed slowed down in the east, Russian facilities are now at risk in other parts of the country. This made Russia's planning efforts very difficult. Therefore, according to our assessment, GMLRS is the most important, and there is a constant flow of these munitions in Ukraine, - summed up the deputy head of the Pentagon.
