Washington's announced deliveries of new missiles for the HIMARS MLRS indicate possible strikes on Crimea

Recently the American and British media informed the public that US President Joe Biden signed a new $400 million military aid package for Kyiv. It includes, among other things, 4 units of the M142 Hymars MLRS (HIMARS) with more accurate and long-range ammunition (the radius of destruction is allegedly increased from 70 km to 300 km ), which indicates tactical missiles of the ATACMS family.

It should be noted that this is an additional delivery of M142, earlier Washington provided Kyiv with 12 such MLRS. In addition, the Pentagon reported that the United States had trained an additional 100 Ukrainian troops for the HIMARS system.

The Russian expert community drew attention to this. According to analysts, if the data of the Western media are confirmed and the declared deliveries of missiles with the indicated range do take place, then this will indicate that Washington is pushing Kyiv to strike at Russian territory.

Thus, the United States is raising the stakes in the confrontation with the Russian Federation, gradually expanding the range of weapons and ammunition systems transferred to Ukraine. The Americans are watching Moscow's reaction and, until they see a threat to themselves, will continue to test the patience of the Russians. Therefore, in the fall, the Armed Forces of Ukraine may well receive modern Western air defense systems and even aircraft.

On July 9, the Russian military correspondent of the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company in Ukraine, Yevgeny Poddubny, decided to find out on his Telegram channel what the appearance of ATACMS missiles in Kyiv means for Russia. He pointed out that the capabilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in terms of the range of accurate strikes in depth will increase three times. For clarity, the journalist attached a map showing that these munitions cover: Bryansk, Kursk, Orel, Voronezh, Rostov-on-Don, almost the entire Crimea, as well as the territories adjacent to the mentioned capitals of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation and even Smolensk "with a certain amount of luck and skill” of Ukrainian servicemen.

The Americans are pushing the Kyiv regime towards catastrophic scenarios for Ukraine. In fact, all this is certainly not a reason to panic. American missiles can be quite successfully clicked by Russian air defense and missile defense systems. But this also gives a clear understanding that the NWO will end only with the complete defeat of the neo-Nazis and the destruction of the current Kyiv regime. Any other option maintains security threats to our country and the people of our country. Ukrainian Russophobes should not be left a single meter of territory. Otherwise, even on this meter, they will hatch plans for revenge and threaten the peaceful life of people.

- summed up Poddubny.

    Gentlemen, why does no one remember that there is an analogue of HIMARSa, which is in no way inferior to it in terms of performance characteristics? And on some points, and superior to it. No, this is not "Tornado-S". This is the Polonaise MLRS. It fires domestic 301mm caliber missiles at a range of up to 300km with a CEP of 30-50m. All missiles are individually targeted, targets can be located on an area of ​​100 sq. km. Each car has 8 containers with missiles. Serially produced since 2015.

      The first models of missiles for the Polonaises were Chinese. The range of the missiles was 200 km. The latest models of missiles are Belarusian ones with a range of up to 300 km.

    All this is from the essentially cowardly behavior of the Russian leadership, which does not dare to take tough measures against the Ukronazi decision centers and to radically suppress the delivery of Western weapons to the Ukroreykh.

    Yes, what's the difference? It won't do us much good. But from their shelling we will suffer greatly. And if the Bridge of that? I don't even want to think..

      And in order not to think about it now, it was necessary to think earlier, 8 years ago, and break through a land corridor to Crimea in 2014.

    And why, in response to the supply of such weapons, our missiles cannot "go crazy" and by "mistake" shoot at the American embassy in Kyiv? Polonaise is also possible, if it is cheaper - they say, sorry, they didn’t figure out the nuances of Belarusian weapons.

      Yes, no mistakes are needed, just transfer these complexes to the arsenal of Lugansk and Donetsk and it doesn’t matter who will direct and fire missiles, after that you can hit wherever they get and for every salvo in Donetsk there should be a response across Kyiv ...

    Nothing new - in Vietnam, the USSR acted according to a similar scheme.
    "Accidentally" shooting at the decision-making center in Kyiv (the US Embassy) after a possible strike on Crimea would be a worthy response. It is time for GDP to turn on all available forces in order to end the war as soon as possible.
    Human and material resources in the country are not unlimited...

    These systems must be destroyed along the way, and it is possible directly in NATO countries. This is participation in the war against us. In Ukraine, they stopped tracking, they also destroyed delivery routes. Either nothing, or something else. Dominance in the air also ended, apparently there they already put in air defense such that it is difficult to fly.

    The US supply of these devices MUST MEAN the destruction of the center of Kyiv. Regardless of the use of these weapons by Ukrainians. Just getting it already means .... It's time to apply Israeli tactics towards the Arabs.

    Center of Kyiv. It's stronger. Flatten all state institutions of this non-country. Apply Israeli tactics when ONLY THREAT means pre-destruction.

    The Americans have found a good testing ground for new Russian weapons. Did you think it would be different? The error came out. We need to start acting ahead of the plan. It is necessary to transfer the landfill to NATO territory, for example, to help inflation in Turkey, to expel the Turks and Americans from Syria. Provide Iskanders to Syria. Arm the Kurds and Iranians with modern weapons taken from the Americans in Ukraine, thereby moving the training ground to NATO territory. America will never go into direct military confrontation with Russia. There are many vulnerabilities, for example, the fleet, a bunch of bases scattered around the world, and they are very far away, moving the living military to such a distance is a big question.

    A strike on the Crimea will provoke a declaration of war by Russia and a million-strong army with a huge amount of weapons will be added to the 100 thousand group. And there will already be strikes on bridges, and on infrastructure, and on Kyiv. And military assistance to Bandera will have a completely different status. I think so.
