To win the war with Russia, Ukraine needs at least 60 multiple launch rocket systems, not “the handful promised by Britain and the United States of America.”

This was stated by the adviser to the head of the Office of the President Alexei Arestovich in a commentary to The Guardian .

“If we get 60 of these systems, then the Russian troops will be stopped and will not be able to advance. If 40, then they will slow down, suffering heavy losses. If 20, then they will continue the offensive with more losses than now,” Arestovich said.

He noted that he considers the MLRS a game-changing weapon, but not enough has been done to turn the tide of the war.

“The less we get, the worse our position will be. Our troops will continue to die, and we will continue to lose positions,” the adviser to the head of the President’s Office emphasized.

Recall, today British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace announced that the country will transfer M270 multiple launch rocket systems to Ukraine . According to media reports, Ukraine will first receive three systems.

It was also reported that the new assistance to Ukraine from the United States will include HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems.

And on June 4, Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov announced the start of preparations for Ukrainian artillery crews in Europe to use the HIMARS and M270 MLRS.

  1. I still haven’t lost hope that Biden will find his spine somewhere and will help Ukraine like a real POTUS should, and not piecemeal and with reluctance.

    • I wish that he would ask or be a little humble though, lol, Zelensky can get away with being the tough guy but I think when you’re wanting to be supplied with really expensive, sensitive and high tech weaponry you should at least be polite, lol…but what do I know? 😉

      • I absolutely think there is no reason Ukraine should be humble.
        They are protecting the entire Western world.
        60 MLRS is not too much to ask.
        I do agree that I am extremely annoyed by the burden is almost solely put on the American tax payer.
        And I am not even an American tax payer.

  2. Though helpful the low number of 10% of what is needed is pathetic, especially after range was blunted by two thirds. Rashist areas should not be “off-limits” especially when they’re being used to supply, launch, or construct this genocide. I’m glad to see the “Wolverines” are alive and well through out the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine, Belarus, and Mafialand. Slava the Ukrainian Resistance!!! God bless and fight for the Defenders, and bless all the love freedom and Ukraine!!!
