Russian invaders have never been able to disable American missile systems, says General Mark Milley.
The Russian occupiers have never managed to destroy the HIMARS missile systems, which have proven themselves in the destruction of military depots in the rear of the Russians. This was stated by the head of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, during a briefing on Thursday, July 21.
According to him, Ukraine, in addition to American HIMARS, also received long-range artillery from other countries, in particular, from the UK.
“To date, these systems have not been destroyed by the Russians, I knock on wood every time I say something like that,” the US military said.
Milley emphasized that Ukrainian forces are effectively using HIMARS and similar systems. Ukraine has excellent gunners, the general added.
Recall, the US National Security Council announced that the White House will provide Ukraine with a new military assistance package, which will include a batch of HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems and ammunition.
In addition, US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin announced that the United States will transfer four more HIMARS systems to Ukraine.
Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny, during a conversation with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States, General Mark Milley, said that an important factor contributing to the retention of defense lines and positions by the defenders of Ukraine is the timely arrival of M142 HIMARS.
