Washington does not intend to resume deliveries of HIMARS to Ukraine

The US military department noted that they no longer plan to send HIMARS MLRS to Ukraine, focusing on the supply of shells for these rocket systems.

This was announced by the Deputy head of the US Department of Defense Colin Kahl. According to him, Washington has already transferred 16 HIMARS installations to Kyiv, "which is actually quite a lot." In addition, the UK has delivered three identical M270 complexes to Ukraine, and Germany will supply three more.

The Ukrainians are doing well with the number of systems, and the priority right now is actually to ensure sustainable supply

- said the deputy head of the department during the briefing.

Thus, the latest package of assistance to Ukraine from the United States included missiles for HIMARS, but not the combat systems themselves.

Meanwhile, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense, over the past day, the Russian Armed Forces destroyed seven HIMARS missiles in the Kherson region. On August 8, Russian troops hit the combat vehicles of these rocket launchers near Kramatorsk.

Earlier, a group of Russian hackers Killnet successfully attacked the website of the American company Lockheed Martin, which produces the HIMARS MLRS. For some time, when going to the resource, users saw an error 403. According to the hackers, reflected in their telegram channel, the Lockheed Martin concern is a “terrorist organization”.

    If you can't destroy the HIMARS, there's no point in delivering more because they're already doing significant damage. In addition, they will deliver other more destructive and powerful weapons, including aircraft, if you do not respond by sending dangerous weapons to Korea, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, etc. You are waging war with one hand tied behind your back.

      Who said we can't? Destroy gradually. More powerful? Minutemen, right? Well, if the Americans are not fools, then they will not be.
