Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov wrote on social networks that he will "announce good news soon".

Reznikov says he discussed "ways to strengthen Ukrainian capabilities" with US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.

He said he would "announce the good news soon" but gave no further details. But he wrote that the Ukrainian army "will continue to use weapons to de-occupy" territories controlled by Russian forces.

Ukraine, let's recall, has been asking the US for ATACMS missiles for some time, the range of which significantly exceeds everything that is currently available to the Ukrainians. Sky News states that it is not known whether the US sent them these missiles or not.
