The United States is expected to send a new longer-range weapon to Ukraine. The Ground-Launched Small Diameter Bomb can send missiles more than 150 kilometers – roughly double the range of Ukraine’s current longest-range weapon. That would enable the Ukrainian army to attack Russian forces from a greater distance AND far behind enemy lines. The weapon is made jointly by the American aerospace company, Boeing and Sweden’s SAAB.
Meanwhile Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelenskyy has said his country deserves to start talks on joining the European Union “this year.” The comments in his nightly address followed initial meetings with Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, ahead of a joint EU-Ukraine summit due later in Kyiv.
