Biden Hesitates Before Long-Range Missiles For Ukraine
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky (44) is now demanding from the United States a new and more powerful missile system that can reach Russian sovereign territory with a range of more than 300 kilometers.
Zelensky has insisted to Washington that he has no intention of attacking Russian cities or targeting civilian targets in Russia. “New York Times” reported. But such missiles are critical to a broader counteroffensive that could begin early next year.
US President Joe Biden (79) hesitates before offering such weapons. He didn’t want to start a big war with Russia. They say the long-range guided missiles, which put Crimea, annexed by Moscow in 2014, within Kiev’s territory, could be seen as a major provocation by Putin. Biden wants the Russians out of Ukraine. “We’re trying to avoid World War III,” Biden was quoted as saying in an earlier statement. (case)
