US President Joe Biden decided to supply Ukraine with HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems in early June. Kyiv received them on June 23. A month later, Washington announced that it had handed over 12 HIMARS to Ukraine, and in total it would deliver 20. Kyiv is counting on 25–30 MLRS of this type.
The National Security Council of Ukraine stated that they expected to receive missiles for HIMARS with a range of more than 80 km, while the White House ruled out that shells with a range of 300 km would be delivered to Kiev.
US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that Kyiv promised Washington not to use the systems to strike targets in Russia, but the representative of the main intelligence department of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Vadym Skibitsky, admitted that they could be used against Russian targets in Crimea.
The Russian authorities have repeatedly criticized Western arms supplies to Kyiv. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that if long-range missiles are handed over to Ukraine, the Russian military will launch strikes against targets that have never been hit before. The Ministry of Defense reported that from July 5 to 20, four HIMARS were destroyed in Ukraine. The systems were also mentioned in the ministry's statement about the destruction of the transshipment base in the Khmelnytsky region.
