In a call with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Friday, Ukraine’s foreign minister Dmytro Kuleba says the pair discussed American military support for Kyiv.
Kuleba says “heavy weapons” are top of Ukraine’s agenda and wrote that “more are coming our way” following the call.
His comments come as CNN reports that the Biden administration is preparing to offer Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (MLRS) to Ukraine – an advanced long-range rocket system.
So far the US has refused pleas to provide Ukraine with the longer-range systems, reportedly fearing that they could be used to attack sites inside Russia thereby expanding the conflict.
Responding to the report, a presenter on Russian state television said on Friday that the US would be crossing a red line by sending the weapons.
