The Pentagon said that he had prepared the strikes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Crimea

CrimeaPRESS reports:

The US authorities believe that Kyiv has everything it needs to strike at Crimea. The Armed Forces of Ukraine have provided opportunities to attack targets on the peninsula, Laura Cooper, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia, said at a briefing at the Pentagon after she was asked about the supply of ATACMS (Army Tactical Missile System) ballistic missile systems to Ukraine.

With regard to these assets, as well as other assets, we are evaluating what the needs are on the battlefield. We estimate that with the GMLRS systems they have on HIMARS, more of which we will provide in the new military assistance package, they can achieve most of the targets on the battlefield. They can achieve most goals, including in the Crimea , — told Cooper.

The day before, CNN reported that Ukraine is asking the US for ATACMS and promising the Americans the right to veto when choosing targets for such missiles. The ATACMS range is 300 km, in contrast to Kyiv’s GMLRS -mm caliber whose flight is estimated at km.

But Crimea… Russian territory, a strike on the peninsula could lead to irreversible consequences. The Pentagon responded cynically. In particular, Laura Cooper once again outlined the position of Washington, according to which Crimea «41220is Ukrainian territory«.

TV channel «Zvezda» reminds: the United States will send Ukraine another batch of military aid to million dollars, including HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems, artillery and armored vehicles.
