LIVE UPDATES: Biden Says US Not Looking to Supply Ukraine With Long-Range HIMARS

Being updated
In February, Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine after the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics requested help to defend them from intensifying attacks by Ukrainian troops. In turn, Western countries have rolled out a comprehensive sanctions campaign against Moscow.
On November 7, Oleksiy Danilov, the chairman of the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council, said that the nationalized assets of enterprises, including Ukrnafta and Motor Sich, received the status of military property and were transferred to the Defense Ministry.
The nationalized assets of enterprises may be returned to their owners after martial law in the country ends, Danilov said.
President Volodymyr Zelensky noted that the nationalization of these enterprises was undertaken within the framework of the current legislation of Ukraine.

Biden on Long-Range HIMARS: Not Looking to Supply Ukraine to Strike Russian Territory
The United States is reluctant to provide Ukraine with long-range munitions for the High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) due to the possibility they could be used to strike Russian soil, US President Joe Biden said.

"We’ve not given Ukraine a ‘blank check.’ There’s a lot of things Ukraine wants that we didn’t do," Biden said during a press conference on Wednesday. "HIMARS have two kinds of rockets you can drop in those: one that goes over 600 miles and one that goes about 160 miles. We didn’t give them any ones that go 600 miles because I’m not looking for them to start bombing Russian territory."

US Congressman Kevin McCarthy, a favorite to lead House Republicans with their tentative majority in the lower chamber of Congress after the midterm elections, said Republicans would be unwilling to provide Ukraine a "blank check" for military and other aid.

However, Biden said during his remarks that he expects the US aid for Ukraine will continue uninterrupted despite the likely Republican control of the House of Representatives.

Chechen Head Kadyrov Supports Decision to Relocate Russian Forces From Parts of Kherson
Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov has praised Sergei Surovikin, the Russian Army general appointed commander of all Russian forces in Ukraine, for his decision to withdraw Russian forces from parts of Kherson.
“After weighing all the pros and cons, General Surovikin made a difficult but right choice between senseless sacrifices for the sake of loud statements and priceless lives of soldiers," Kadyrov wrote on his Telegram channel. “The fact that Kherson is a difficult combat territory was known to everyone from the very first days of the special operation. The soldiers of my units also reported that it was very difficult to fight in this area. Yes, it's possible to hold it, to arrange supplies of some ammunition, but the price will be numerous human lives. And such a forecast does not suit us. Therefore, I think that Surovikin acted like a real military general, who is not afraid of criticism. He is in charge of people. He knows better."

European Commission Proposes Support Package for Ukraine Worth $18.1Bln in Loans in 2023
The European Commission proposed on Wednesday a support package for Ukraine in the form of concessional loans of up to 18 billion euros ($18.1 billion) to help it cover short-term financial needs in 2023.

The proposal comes following the European Council meeting on October 20-21. Loans will be disbursed in regular installments, the commission specified.

"This stable, regular and predictable financial assistance – averaging €1.5 billion per month – will help cover a significant part of Ukraine's short-term funding needs for 2023, which the Ukrainian authorities and the International Monetary Fund estimate at €3 to €4 billion per month," the European Commission said in a statement.

The support package would require similar efforts by "other major donors" to cover all of Ukraine’s funding needs, according to the statement.

The commission noted that thanks to this support package, Ukraine will be able to keep on paying wages and pension, as well as maintain public services, including hospitals and schools. In addition, this aid will allow Kiev to restore energy infrastructure, water systems, transport networks, roads and bridges.

On November 3, Ukraine's parliament adopted the budget for 2023 with a record deficit of $38 billion, which Kiev hopes to cover with the help of foreign donors.
