The long-awaited U.S. decision to supply Ukraine with long-range MGM-140 ATACMS missiles sparked genuine panic among Russian TV propagandists.

A video clip circulating on social media shows Olga Skabeeva and her panel of "experts" reacting to the implications of these advanced weapons now potentially targeting Russian and Russian-occupied territories.

Skabeeva detailed the missile's 300-kilometer range, noting it encompasses cities and regions such as Belgorod, Kursk, Bryansk, Voronezh, Sevastopol, Orel, Lipetsk, Donetsk, Luhansk, and Rostov-on-Don. "This is a huge part of our country that is now within the reach of Ukrainians," she expressed, surrounded by concerned experts.

Moreover, Skabeeva speculated that the ATACMS might already be in Ukraine, countering American reports stating the weapons would only arrive by week's end. "Each time, the Americans usually deliver military aid to Ukraine before announcing it. Therefore, we assume that everything that is due from the $61 billion military aid package is already on the territory of our enemy," she conjectured.

Confirming these suspicions, CNN reported on April 24, citing Pentagon sources, that the U.S. had secretly supplied Ukraine with ATACMS missiles as early as March, following President Joe Biden's approval of the transfer in February. These missiles, part of a $300 million aid package announced on March 12, were in Ukraine by early April.

Additionally, Reuters’ sources indicated that Ukraine used these missiles to strike a Russian airbase in temporarily occupied Dzhankoi, Crimea, last week.
