Ukraine received HIMARS from the US

Russia has lost multiple senior military officers in the Ukraine war and now it's been forced to recall the retired military officers, according to western propaganda.

Range of HIMARS Is 50 Miles

Ukraine received HIMARS from the US under part of a military support package. The weapons are more advanced than M777 howitzers as they can hit the target to 50 miles.

Ukraine received eight HIMARS systems from the US two weeks back and Washington will send four more HIMARS systems to Ukraine. Defense Secretary in Kyiv had stated that the weapon was first received on June 23.

Washington Will Send Four More HIMARS Systems To Ukraine

The HIMARS system was also used on Tuesday to destroy Russia's ammunition depot in the Kherson region's Nova Kakhovka.

Reports have claimed that the HIMARS system is more accurate than its Russian counterparts. Last week, President Volodymyr Zelensky stated that with the help of some advanced Western weapons, Kyiv has managed to push back against the Russians.

Defense reporter with The Kyiv Independent Illia Ponomarenko has posted a video of the Nova Kakhovka attack. "Mother of God. Reportedly, a large Russian ammo depot in Nova Kahovka," he said in the tweet.

The video shows a massive fireball erupting over the ammunition depot at the night.
