Ukrainians using HIMARS rocket system

Ukrainian forces have started using the US-supplied High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) against Russian command posts, The Hill reported citing an American defense official.

"Ukrainians are able to carefully select targets that will undermine the effort by Russia in a more systematic way, certainly than they would be able to do with the shorter-range artillery systems," the official was quoted as saying.

On Friday, US President Joe Biden announced Washington is sending its NASAMS defense system to Ukraine, which it uses to guard airspace over the White House, the Pentagon and the US Capitol.
