“Long Hand Family of #UAarmy has been enlarged: the first MLRS M270 have arrived! They will be good company for #HIMARS on the battlefield,” Reznikov tweeted.
The minister thanked Ukraine’s foreign partners, adding that there will be “no mercy” for the enemy.
As reported earlier, the Norwegian government approved the transfer to Ukraine, with the help of Great Britain, of three M270 multiple rocket launchers.
It was noted that the Norwegian systems need to be modernized, so Great Britain will receive and upgrade the Norwegian launchers before forwarding the already modernized systems to Ukraine.
