In the LPR, they reported the shelling of Perevalsk from the American MLRS HIMARS

Ukrainian military shelled the city of Perevelsk in the LPR from the American multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) HIMARS. This was reported at the representative office of the LPR in the Joint Center for Control and Coordination of the Ceasefire.

“From the side of the armed formations of Ukraine, shelling was recorded at 07:20 from the direction of the settlement of Artemovsk (Bakhmut) on the settlement of Perevalsk using MLRS М142 HIMARS (one-missile)»,— The message says.

U.S. President Joe Biden announced the decision to send HIMARS to Ukraine on June 1. The Pentagon clarified that we are talking about five MLRS capable of hitting targets at a distance of up to 80 km, and shells for them. Politico later reported that the US authorities were considering sending an additional four MLRS to Ukraine.

The Kremlin reacted negatively to the supply of long-range artillery to Kyiv. President Vladimir Putin said that if foreign countries supply Kyiv with long-range missiles, the military will begin to carry out strikes in Ukraine on targets that have not yet been struck.

According to US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Kyiv assured that they will not use the received MLRS to strike at targets in Russia. On June 23, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine announced the arrival of the first batch of American MLRS in the country.
