Quote: "Four additional HIMARS have arrived in Ukraine. I’m grateful to [US President Joe Biden], [Secretary of Defence] Lloyd Austin III and the American people for strengthening of Ukrainian army. We have proven to be smart operators of this weapon. The sound of the HIMARS volley has become a top hit of this summer at the front lines!"


  • The White House earlier announced a new package of military aid to Ukraine, including additional HIMARS, which "the Ukrainians have used very effectively to change the course of hostilities [to their advantage]".
  • On Monday, 1 August, Ukraine also received German long-range MARS II MLRSs (multiple-launch rocket systems).
