Ukraine is negotiating with US representatives to provide longer-range missiles for HIMARS . Now the Armed Forces of Ukraine are armed with missiles that are capable of hitting at a distance of up to 70 kilometers.

Fyodor Venislavsky, a member of the parliamentary committee on national security and defense, announced this on the air of the United News telethon.

“At all levels, our state is negotiating with US representatives on the need to provide us with longer-range missiles for HIMARS. Now we have up to 70 km, and in general, these missiles of various modifications are capable of hitting enemy targets at a greater depth. Therefore, I think that there are every chance to break through this and get long-range missiles,” Venislavsky said.

The system is designed to fire guided and unguided missiles. The maximum range is 300 km.

As UNIAN previously reported,  panic began in Russia over the effectiveness of HIMARS .

    Good. Ukraine deserves it. It has shown that it can use any Western weapon with great effect. And, it’s more than high time to bring the war to the warmongering country itself!
