Earlier, Ukrainian troops launched a strike with missiles from a multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) HIMARS on Melitopol, which is called the “gateway to the Crimea”. The military expert believes that the Armed Forces of Ukraine could use long-range GMRLS missiles with a very “wide range” of action.
“These are missiles of various ranges – both 160 kilometers and 220. I do not rule out that some of these were delivered to Ukraine. The fact is that the supply of weapons and military equipment has long gone out of the public sphere, and the range of supplies has ceased to be brought to in full,” he said in an interview with MK.
The specialist emphasized that the Ukrainian army managed to attack Melitopol with the help of the United States and NATO, despite numerous statements from the West about the importance of preventing the escalation of the conflict. Washington still believes that Crimea is Ukrainian territory, so the Americans can allow Kyiv to strike with any ammunition, the expert said.
