It became known how many HIMARS installations and similar systems are now fighting for Ukraine

Currently, nine mobile HIMARS and similar multiple rocket launchers provided by the US and partners are operating in Ukraine.

The Allies handed over to Ukraine 9 MLRS HIMARS and similar systems. This is a powerful weapon, but the Armed Forces of Ukraine need more multiple rocket launchers.

 Alexey Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, told The Wall Street Journal about this  .play video

He said the arrival of U.S. High Mobility Rocket and Artillery Systems (HIMARS) last month allowed Ukraine to accurately hit enemy targets behind the front lines that we hadn’t hit before.

Currently, nine mobile HIMARS and similar multiple rocket launchers provided by the US and partners are operating in Ukraine. Russia is helpless against such weapons, Danilov added.

The Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council emphasized that Ukraine is waging a defensive war, and several dozen MLRS are needed for a counteroffensive.

Earlier, Danilov said that the occupying army was exhausted and did not have the strength to attack in more than one direction of the front.

  1. I wish very much that the West would finally recover from its timidness and cowardice and help Ukraine the right way, instead of taking steps like a crippled babushka.

    • I don’t think this is about cowardice, even though I used to think this.

      I think when the next group has been trained and enough ammunition is supplied to Ukraine, there will be next batches.

      These things eat massive amounts of missiles, so you can at once provide a 100 but most of them will then be idle.

      What makes me think this is that they are being brought immediately after announcement, while these things take weeks of training to master.

      So I think at this point there are Ukrainian soldiers in NATO countries training on them and stockpiles of missiles are being brought to Ukraine.

      Imagine that a few weeks ago the delivery of only 3 or 4 was announced, and a week later it was up to 9.

      So I think many more batches are coming.

      • I like to put some speed into the tired bones of spineless Western leaders, Bert. This could have been accomplished three months ago already, if they didn’t fear their own shadows. Yes, fear is a very large factor of lethargic decisions and actions. That’s one reason why Joe doesn’t want mafia land itself to be attacked! Just think about it for a moment… The same country that started this war and is causing huge destruction and commits crimes en masse and so on, is not allowed to be touched! That’s cowardice of the first order.
        I always hope that what is publically announced is only part of the complete story, so maybe you’re right about that.
