< p>In early June, the United States announced the provision of five HIMARS MLRS to Ukraine. The office of the President of Ukraine assured that they did not plan to use these weapons to strike targets in Russia. On June 23, Ukrainian Defense Minister Alexei Reznikov announced the arrival of the complexes in the country. Two days later, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny said that weapons were already being used in the Donbass.

The Russian Ministry of Defense, in turn, reported on the destruction of two installations and ammunition depots for them. The authorities of the LPR and the Russian-controlled Kherson region reported about Ukrainian strikes on their territories from HIMARS.
