Ukraine and U.S. Finalize ATACMS Agreement

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke with U.S. President Joe Biden, where they discussed the positive shift in terms of the American assistance and finalized details on the ATACMS agreements.

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill on April 20, providing almost $61 billion of assistance to Ukraine. The bill must now be passed by the Senate and signed by President Joe Biden.

On April 21, Mark Warner, Chair of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee, said in an interview on CBS News that long-range ATACMS will be sent to Ukraine as quickly as possible: “I hope once the President signs, we’ve been told that there is, it is the President’s signature, making sure Congress does its job that these materials will be in transit by the end of the week.”

In his daily speech, on April 22, President Zelenskyy expressed his gratitude to everyone in the U.S. for supporting Ukraine in its fight for freedom: “I am grateful to Mr. President, his team, everyone in the United States Congress, personally to Speaker Johnson, and all who support the active defense of freedom, for the decision that benefits our protection from Russian terror and our ability to end the war justly, with true peace for all Ukrainians.”

President Zelenskyy has also stressed Ukraine’s top priorities at the moment: protection of the sky, modern artillery, long-range capability, and ensuring that the American support packages arrive as quickly as possible.

“And today’s result is that in the agreements on ATACMS for Ukraine, all the details have been finalized. Thank you, Mr. President, thank you, Congress, thank you, America!” Zelenskyy added.
