Monday, 30 May 2022 11:55 PM MYT WASHINGTON, May 30 — The United States will not send Ukraine rocket systems that can reach into Russia, President Joe Biden said today, as Ukraine pushes for longer-range weapons system to help in its fight. Ukrainian officials have been asking allies for longer-range systems including the Multiple Launch Rocket System, or MLRS, that can fire a barrage of rockets hundreds of miles away. Invading forces appear close to seizing all of the Luhansk region, one of the more modest war goals the Kremlin set after abandoning its assault on the capital, Kyiv, in the face of Ukrainian resistance. “We’re not going to send to Ukraine rocket systems that strike into Russia,” Biden told reporters after arriving back at the White House after a weekend in Delaware. Biden did not rule out providing any specific weapons system, but instead appeared to be placing conditions on how they could be used. However, Ukraine's deputy defence minister, Hanna Malyar, said the battle for Lyman continued, the ZN. Biden and his team are working on a new package of military equipment and it is expected to be announced in coming days. Serangan Russia di Ukraine serta sekatan Barat menyebabkan bekalan baja, gandum dan komoditi lain antara kedua-dua negara itu terjejas.

The MLRS was under consideration, but nothing with long-range strike capabilities outside of battlefield use, a senior administration official said. Sievierodonetsk, some 60 kilometres from Lyman on the eastern side of the river and the largest Donbas city still held by Ukraine, was under heavy assault from the Russians. The Ukrainian government has urged the West to provide it with more longer-range weapons in order to turn the tide in the war, now in its fourth month. Biden wants to help Ukraine defend itself but has been opposed to providing weapons that Ukraine could use to attack Russia. The fighting continues," the general staff of Ukraine's armed forces said early on Sunday. CNN and The Washington Post reported on Friday the Biden administration was leaning towards sending the MLRS and another system, the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, known as HIMARS, as part of an upcoming military aid package. Thousands of people have been killed in Ukraine and millions more displaced since the Russian invasion on February 24, which Moscow calls a “special military operation. The governor of Luhansk said on Friday Russian troops had already entered Sievierodonetsk. “Moscow berkeras menyatakan krisis makanan dunia yang dihadapi ketika ini bukan berpunca dari perang Russia-Ukraine, sebaliknya tindakan ‘kurang bijak’ Barat,” kata responden Al-Jazeera di Moscow, Dorsa Jabbari.

” Biden’s administration and US allies have been increasingly willing to give Ukraine longer-range weaponry, including M777 howitzers, as Kyiv battles Russian forces with more success than intelligence officials had predicted. But US intelligence has also warned about growing risks, particularly given a mismatch between Russian President Vladimir Putin’s apparent ambitions and the performance of his military. It was not clear whether they had begun to pull out on Saturday. Ukraine has started receiving Harpoon anti-ship missiles from Denmark and self-propelled howitzers from the United States, Ukrainian Defence Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said on Saturday. — Reuters Advertisement . US officials have told Reuters such systems are actively being considered, with a decision possible in coming days.
