Ukraine Deploys New Weapon for First Time After Secret Delivery

Ukraine’s military deployed long-range ballistic missiles secretly supplied by the United States against Russian forces for the first time, according to a Wednesday report by the Associated Press (AP).

The AP cited U.S. officials as saying the weapons were used during a bombing on a Russian military airfield in Crimea last week, as well as during an overnight strike against Russian targets in another occupied area of Ukraine.

One official told the AP that President Joe Biden approved the delivered of the long-range Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) in early March.

This is a breaking story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
