Biden: U.S. is considering sending ATACMS to Ukraine

The U.S. is considering providing long-range ATACMS missiles to Ukraine, President Joe Biden confirmed in a statement on July 12.

Biden told Jennifer Jacobs, a journalist from Bloomberg News, that the administration is still thinking about sending ATACMS to Ukraine, but that the more pressing military need is for  artillery shells.
