UK Plans to Send Long-Range Missiles to Ukraine

After President Joe Biden announced last week that the United States would be sending rocket systems to Ukraine, the United Kingdom joined in and announced their plans to send long-range missiles as well.

Ukraine has previously announced their desire for longer range missiles that would be able to help them defend themselves from Russia. The M270 Multiple Rocket Launch Systems missiles that the United Kingdom will be sending over are able to pinpoint a target up to 50 miles away.

British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace has publicly shown his support for Ukraine and believes that with the help of these continuous shipments the Ukrainian army can win this battle against Russia.
