The Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to use American High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) very effectively against the russian occupation army

As Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov reported In comments on national television on Monday, July 25, the Ukrainian military has already destroyed 50 Russian ammunition depots using the latest high-precision HIMARS systems.
