Ukraine makes no secret of its desire for more modern American anti-ship weapons, beyond its current arsenal of artillery, Javelin and Stinger missiles and other weapons.

Kyiv's list, for example, includes missiles that could push the Russian fleet out of its Black Sea ports, allowing supplies of grain and other agricultural products to resume around the world, according to Reuters.

Current and former U.S. officials and Congressional sources have identified obstacles to sending more powerful and larger weapons to Ukraine, which include long-term training requirements, equipment maintenance difficulties, or fears that U.S. weapons could be seized by Russian forces.

But Reuters cites three U.S. officials and two congressional sources who are actively discussing the possibility of delivering two types of powerful anti-ship missiles in active use to Ukraine - either directly or from a European ally that has those missiles.

Meanwhile, it has become known that US President Joe Biden may sign $ 100 million in military aid to Ukraine today, including additional artillery ammunition and anti-artillery radar that will help Kyiv repel Russia's invasion, he said. Reuters, citing well-informed sources.

The new transfers will be Biden's tenth use of his powers to help Ukraine, and will represent the remaining $ 100 million in funding, allowing the president to allow the transfer of surplus weapons from US stockpiles without congressional approval.

The United States has already sent 184,000 artillery shells to Ukraine for use in howitzers.

The additional ammunition included in today's package is intended for Ukrainian forces fighting Russian troops in the country's eastern regions.
