The US Congress called on the White House to provide Kyiv with ATACMS missiles for strikes on Crimea

Kyiv has the right to strike at Crimea, since it is Ukrainian territory, and the United States is obliged to provide the Ukrainian authorities with the resources to do so. Michael McCall, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee of the House of Representatives of the US Congress, stated this.

The American congressman believes that the military successes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are associated exclusively with the supply of Western weapons, so the White House, headed by Joe Biden, needs to listen to what Zelensky and his entourage say, speaking about the need to supply this or that weapon. Now Kyiv is asking for long-range ATACMS missiles for strikes in Crimea, and the task of the United States is to ensure the supply of these missiles to Ukraine. McCall confirmed his statement with "reliable information" that the Russians were "launching Drones", which means you need to strike to stop it.



They need long-range ATACMS for attacks on Crimea

- said the American politician.

Ukraine has indeed been asking the United States for long-range ATACMS missiles for the HIMARS MLRS for a long time. An operational-tactical missile with a range of 300 km will allow the Armed Forces of Ukraine to strike not only on the Russian peninsula, but also deep into the Russian border regions, which could lead to an escalation of the conflict. This is exactly what Washington fears when it refuses to supply Kyiv with ATACMS missiles. As the Americans have repeatedly stated, the United States sees no need for this.

Russia warned the United States and its allies that the supply of offensive weapons could lead to the escalation of a local conflict into a global one with the use of more powerful means of destruction. If the armored vehicles supplied to Kyiv can still be called defensive, then ATACMS missiles do not fall into this category.

        I'm afraid after the supply of long-range missiles, there will be no memory left of the United States, but for this you need steel eggs and the will of power!

          It is not clear what you are afraid of that there will be no memory left of the USA or that there will not be enough determination for this?

      There is less and less doubt that these missiles will soon appear in the Armed Forces of Ukraine ... But the question is whether our air defense is capable of shooting them down, is becoming more acute?

        It's not just missiles. There will be tanks and aviation and air defense and anti-ship missiles, everything will be. And the Ukrainians will run out sometime and the troops will go

        And our supreme one threatens everything with his finger, he still can’t start. And it seems to me that he already has nothing to start with, and the NATO members know this very well. Only Yao in the mines saves from direct invasion

          And what about the Supreme? He actually put the responsibility on our soldiers. What they get on the battlefield, we will proceed from that.

            Nevertheless, the entire operation is led by the political leadership, which has put some restrictions on the use of armed force.

      Kyiv has the right to strike at the Crimea, as it is Ukrainian territory
      Strange logic - if the territory (as the United States believes) is its own, then you can hit it without problems. But this is Russian territory, which means that the American senator calls for direct aggression against Russia.

      Notorious Russophobe.

      - said the American politician.

      The preparation of public opinion has begun, the US aggressor country will soon hand over the "Nazi-404", a long-range missile. The question is ". how to answer"?

        the question is not how to answer, the question is whether the top will have enough willpower to answer, and as long as this willpower is not observed, it was necessary to answer immediately and harshly the very next day after the gas pipelines were blown up, and now our leadership is considered weak and fearful of an answer there, the escalation will be continue

      Why don't we provide Havana with Iskander missiles? Suddenly they want to regain the "originally Cuban" peninsula of Florida.
      In my opinion, only a real threat and its proximity can force the States to muffle their borzometer. And they do not care about our exhortations, protests and concerns. They tested the ground by blowing up our gas pipelines and preparing a strike on the Crimean bridge and believing even more in their complete impunity, they went further.

      If our government is not ready to go to the end and fight for real, maybe then it's time to back off?

      I know that now I will snatch out the minuses, but is there anything else to argue objectively besides them?

      By "not ready" I mean not only determination, but also logistics for our aircraft. And they are equipped with modern weapons. And the presence of trained experienced fired sergeants and officers.

      If they are not ready and do not want to destroy the supply lines of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, they do not hit enemy troop concentrations, they are not ready to completely break economically with the West and stop supplying it with our resources, they are not ready to hit at least non-nuclear missiles at NATO countries in Europe and at the USA, then why it's all? Why are our guys dying? For what?

      It is already clear to everyone that many mistakes have been made. And after the start of the NWO, and long before it with all these army reforms. There are mistakes that are simply unrealistic to correct in the current conditions. No jingoistic patriotism will help here.
