ATACMS Dilemma and Russia’s Concerns

According to the news released by Popular Mechanics, in September 20, 2023, the impending transfer of MGM-140 ATACMS land deep-strike missiles  from the United States to Ukraine has ignited both anticipation and controversy. Behind the scenes, anonymous sources hint at a stockpile “rediscovery” bolstering the case for this move, even though the U.S. Army had previously denied any missing ATACMS inventory. Publicly, White House officials have kept the ATACMS transfer “on the table” while navigating delicate geopolitical considerations.

Ukraine’s quest for these deep-strike missiles has gained momentum over the past year, with President Volodymyr Zelensky seeking support from the Biden administration. However, Biden’s hesitation stems from concerns about the strategic implications of providing Ukraine with such potent weaponry. Ukraine’s desire to acquire the MGM-140 ATACMS, a deep-strike missiles weapon with a range of 190 miles, has raised alarm bells in Moscow. Russia fears that supplying Ukraine with ATACMS could potentially enable provocative attacks deep into Russian territory.

Although such threats are often perceived as propaganda, they underscore the geopolitical tensions surrounding this transfer. Recent deliveries of Storm Shadow/SCALP-EG cruise deep-strike missiles by the U.K. and France to Ukraine have somewhat eased concerns, given their superior range. Yet, questions remain about the ATACMS transfer’s impact on the U.S. military’s own stockpile and the strategic balance in Eastern Europe.
