Washington is trying to justify Kyiv when it says that the Armed Forces of Ukraine unintentionally inflicted attack on Yelenovkasince the United States had previously convinced Russia of the high accuracy of the HIMARS MLRS, said the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Alexander Fomin.
Earlier, the Pentagon issued a statement in which it noted that if this strike was carried out by the Ukrainian army, it did not want to do it.
“We regard this statement as a clumsy attempt to justify the provocations of the Kyiv regime,” Fomin said.
He recalled that the United States has repeatedly stated the high accuracy of the HIMARS multiple launch rocket system. At the same time, it is known that the Pentagon supplies the Armed Forces with space intelligence data and prepares tasks for firing, the deputy head of the Russian Defense Ministry added.
