The United States is planning to send Ukraine sophisticated anti-aircraft missiles to defend against Russian attacks, a source familiar with the process told AFP on Monday.
President Joe Biden "has made the procurement of advanced air defense systems for Ukraine a priority," the source said, asking not to be identified.
An announcement is "likely this week" on the purchase of an "advanced medium- to long-range surface-to-air missile defense system," as well as other weaponry to help Ukraine fight Russia's invasion.
