The Armed Forces of Ukraine are being trained in the use of American multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) HIMARS and MLRS, the Pentagon said.
US Deputy Secretary of Defense Colin Kahl, during a session at the CNAS national security conference, recalled that the US authorities had recently approved the supply of rocket artillery to Ukraine. He also called the military assistance provided by the Armed Forces of Ukraine unprecedented.
“We focused on providing the Ukrainians with more and more artillery pieces,” he said.
At the same time, he acknowledged that Russian troops still outnumber Ukrainians in artillery power.
