Quotation: “And today I especially want to thank the warriors of one of our rocket artillery brigades, who with their accurate fire destroyed the very Russian depot from which the occupants took S-missiles 300 to bomb Kharkiv. The MLRS is a good thing. Thank you, our heroes!
And the occupiers will certainly get an answer for today’s missile attack on Kryvyi Rih, for the constant shelling of Zelenodolsk, the shelling of Nikopol, Chernihiv and Sumy oblasts, Kharkiv oblast, cities of Donbass and all our territory.”
Details: According to the President, the Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to destroy the warehouses, bases, crossing points and headquarters of the invaders – consistently, very carefully and precisely. “The Russian army entered the territory of Ukraine without expecting any resistance. And it will flee from here without any further hope of salvation,” he said.
The President thanked Ukrainian defenders, intelligence services, the security service of Ukraine and Ukrainian citizens in the temporarily occupied territory who helped the army destroy the invaders’ facilities.
Reference: The M270 Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) is a multirole system on a tracked chassis that can be used either as an MLRS or as an operational and tactical missile system.
It is sometimes called “the finger of God” due to its devastating firepower.
At the beginning of June, the United Kingdom announced that it would send Ukraine M270 MLRS, which can hit targets within a radius of 80 km.
On June 29, the Norwegian Ministry of Defense promised to ensure that Ukraine would obtain an additional MLRS from the United Kingdom, by providing three MLRS to the British to replenish their stocks.
On July 15, the first M270 MLRS arrived in Ukraine.
On July 29, Valerii Zaluzhnyi, Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, released a video showing the M270 MLRS being used in combat.
On August 12, Oleksii Reznikov, Ukrainian Defense Minister, reported that another batch of M270 MLRS had arrived in Ukraine.
