WASHINGTON (AP) — A U.S. official says the longer-range ballistic missiles long sought by Ukraine have been delivered quietly by the U.S. and are being used on the battlefield against Russia nearly a month after President Joe Biden promised them to his Ukrainian counterpart.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and other Ukrainian leaders have been urgently pressing the U.S. to provide the Army Tactical Missile System, known as ATACMS. Their delivery to the war front was shrouded in secrecy, with the expectation that the first public acknowledgement would come when the missiles were used on the battlefield.
