The type of combat in Ukraine could soon change if recent diplomatic agreements are implemented.

US Support Quietly Increases for Ukraine as Peace Remains Elusive

A Department of Defense plan to send Ukraine advanced, long-range counter-battery radars highlights both an evolution of the Ukraine war and a ratcheting up of U.S. military support for the post-Soviet state, which continues to fight a war in its eastern territories against combined Russian-separatist forces.

On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported on a Pentagon plan to send Ukraine AN/TPQ-37 and 36 Firefinder radars, which have ranges from 15 to 31 miles. The White House has not yet decided on whether to approve the deal, according to the report, and the radars would probably not be available until next year.

Subsequently, on Friday, the U.S. State Department announced that the U.S. Army training exercise in the western Ukrainian town of Yavoriv called “Fearless Guardian,” which is currently limited to training the Ukrainian National Guard, will expand this fall to include the regular army.
