Following a surge of American artillery support, Ukraine isn't settling.

In a recent telephone discussion with U.S. President Joseph Biden, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed gratitude for the supply of ATACMS missiles but hinted at wanting more.

Zelenskyy emphasized the game-changing impact these long-range ATACMS missiles have had on the battlefield. Ukrainian forces notably utilized them to strike Russian-held airfields in locations such as Berdyansk and Luhansk.

With this success, Zelenskyy voiced interest in further augmenting Ukraine's long-range artillery capabilities, though specific details remain under wraps.

The U.S. has already supplied Ukraine with roughly 20 of these potent missiles, capable of reaching targets up to 165 kilometers away, as reported by the New York Times.

The recent chat between the two leaders suggests that this might be just the beginning of a more substantial arsenal boost for Ukraine.
