Ukraine has not lost a single HIMARS system - Reznikov

The Ukrainian Armed Forces have not lost a single HIMARS system, and all Russian claims about the destruction of these rocket systems are fiction.

Ukraine's Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov said this in an interview with the Voice of America, Ukrinform reports.

"I can say absolutely responsibly: not a single HIMARS has been lost. Therefore, when you read in the Russian media or on [Russian] social networks that soldier Ivanov broke into a truck with a Kalashnikov and saw a truck in which he destroyed 12 HIMARS with a Kalashnikov at the same time, you can just laugh, twist [your finger at the temple] and say, 'Well, that's their propaganda system. It's nonsense'," Reznikov said.

Ukraine received the first HIMARS missile systems from the United States in June. Their use allowed the Ukrainian Armed Forces to significantly change the situation on the front line, having destroyed a large number of enemy ammunition depots and having disrupted Russian supply chains.

Since the arrival of HIMARS systems in Ukraine, Russia's Defense Ministry and Russian media outlets have repeatedly announced the destruction of these rocket systems, but none of these reports have been confirmed by facts.
