APU successfully use American HIMARS
Ukraine successfully attacks Russian command posts with American-provided HIMARS multiple rocket launchers.
The Ukrainian military has been successfully using American HIMARS and other weapons to defeat Russian command posts and weaken their ability on the battlefield. About this on Friday, July 1, informed Foreign Policy journalist Jack Detch, commenting on the results of a closed briefing by the US Department of Defense.
He quoted a senior Pentagon official as saying that Ukraine had made it “very difficult” for Russia to conduct operations on Serpent Island in the Black Sea by using Harpoon missiles to attack resupply ships.
“Russia’s withdrawal from Serpent’s Island will make it easier for Ukraine to defend Odessa,” the official said.
In addition, according to a Pentagon official, Ukraine has successfully attacked Russian command posts with American-provided HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems.
“The United States believes that Russia launched an anti-ship missile strike at a shopping center in Kremenchuk,” a US defense official said.
This attack by the Russian Federation, according to a Pentagon official, highlights the “reckless nature” of Russian attacks.
In addition, Jack Detch writes that the United States will provide the Armed Forces with air defense systems in order to transfer Ukraine from Soviet weapons to new systems.
It is also noted that the United States is focused on supplying Ukraine with 155-mm artillery shells for howitzers and GMLRs.
On the eve it was reported that the Pentagon announced the provision of arms to Ukraine for a total of $820 million.
Before that, US President Joe Biden announced the delivery of Western air defense systems to Ukraine and even more HIMARS installations.
