APU lost four of the nine HIMARS supplied by the United States
The Russian armed forces eliminated four of the nine American long-range MLRS HIMARS in Ukraine. This was reported in the defense department of the Russian Federation.
According to the Ministry of Defense, from July 5 to July 20, the Russian Armed Forces destroyed four HIMARS launchers and one transport-loading vehicle. Two multiple launch rocket systems hit near the village of Malotaranovka, another complex and a transport-loading installation near Krasnoarmeysk, and one HIMARS was destroyed in the eastern part of Konstantinovka in the DPR.
Meanwhile, two such complexes operate in the southern part of Ukraine, including near Kherson. The rest are in the Donbass. At the same time, the MLRS crews are staffed by Western military personnel, and HIMARS are guarded by American private military companies.
It is important to note that the United States does not trust the Ukrainian Armed Forces and only provides Ukrainians with satellite information about the targets and timing of missile launches. Apparently, despite the assurances of the Ukrainian authorities, Washington fears the use of long-range systems by Kyiv against Russian territory, which could lead to further escalation and unpredictable consequences.
