President Joe Biden reportedly promised Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that the U.S. would give Ukraine long-range ATACMS missiles even though there is growing opposition in Congress to continuing aid to the country.
In addition to a $325 aid package that is opposed by more than two dozen Republican lawmakers, Biden promised that Ukraine would get the long-range missiles, which can hit targets 190 miles away.
The missiles are a significant step up from Ukraine's current firepower. Biden has been hesitant to pledge them previously because it could be seen as an escalation of the war with Russia and could prompt retaliation.
Ukraine has promised not to use the missiles to hit Russian territory, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The White House and Pentagon have not confirmed the promise by Biden, and no timeline for giving the missiles was given.
Abrams tanks promised months ago will be arriving in Ukraine this week, the report also said.
