Biden Announces Plan to Deliver ‘Advanced Rocket Systems’ to Ukraine in NY Times Op-Ed
President Joe Biden blazoned he’ll shoot advanced rocket systems to Ukraine in an op- ed published by the New York Times Tuesday evening.
The chairman was blamed from all angles Monday after he said he’d not give the embattled country with rocket systems able of striking inside Russia. still, he wrote in the Times on Tuesday that he’ll shoot advanced bullet systems to fight Russian service on Ukrainian soil.
“ The irruption Vladimir Putin allowed would last days is now in its fourth month, ” Biden wrote. “ The Ukrainian people surprised Russia and inspired the world with their immolation, fortitude and battleground success. The free world and numerous other nations, led by the United States, rallied to Ukraine’s side with unknown service, philanthropic and fiscal support. ”
Biden said theU.S. is committed to seeing Ukraine free, and will act to see it negotiate its pretensions on the battleground. He added,
As President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine has said, ultimately this war “will only definitively end through diplomacy.” Every negotiation reflects the facts on the ground. We have moved quickly to send Ukraine a significant amount of weaponry and ammunition so it can fight on the battlefield and be in the strongest possible position at the negotiating table.
That’s why I’ve decided that we will provide the Ukrainians with more advanced rocket systems and munitions that will enable them to more precisely strike key targets on the battlefield in Ukraine.
Biden also said, “ Vladimir Putin didn’t anticipate this degree of concinnity or the strength of our response. He wasmistaken.However, he’s inversely incorrect, If he expects that we will waver or fracture in the months to come. ”
The reversal comes a day after the chairman was blamed for denying Ukraine access to high- tech, long- range rockets.
MSNBC critic and formerU.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul was among those who blamed Biden. During an interview with Katy Tur, he called a decision not to arm Ukraine “ a losing strategy. ”
