ABC News: US likely to send long-range ATACMS missiles to Ukraine for the first time: Officials 

“They are coming,” one U.S. official told ABC News. 

 The Biden administration is likely to send Ukraine long-range Army Tactical Missile Systems, or ATACMS, to help in its fight to repel the Russian invasion of its territory, according to U.S. officials. 

“They are coming,” said one official who had access to security assistance plans. The official noted that, as always, such plans are subject to change until officially announced. 

A second official said the missiles are “on the table” and likely to be included in an upcoming security assistance package, adding that a final decision has not been made. It could be months before Ukraine receives the missiles, according to the official.
