The US handed over the first HIMARS to Ukraine back in June.
Western experts have not found evidence of cases of interception by Russian invaders of HIMARS shells , with which the Armed Forces of Ukraine “carry out” the warehouses and bases of the enemy.
This is stated in the report of the Institute for the Study of War ( ISW ).
The day before, the invaders claimed that the Armed Forces of Ukraine fired four HIMARS missiles at Kherson, and that all of them were allegedly intercepted by Russian air defense.
However, as analysts specify, there was no confirmation of the interception, just as there was no confirmation of the operation of Russian air defenses at all.
“There is no open source evidence that Russian forces have ever intercepted HIMARS munitions,” the Institute’s report notes.
