A little over a week ago Ukraine's military began showing off its newly acquired long-range rocket systems from the US by uploading videos of launches against Russian forces.
Ukraine's Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov announced last month, "HIMARS have arrived in Ukraine. Thank you to my colleague and friend SecDef Lloyd J. Austin III for these powerful tools! Summer will be hot for Russian occupiers. And the last one for some of them," in reference to the High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems.
Already, Ukraine's forces and their American backers are touting that they've been able to target and strike Russian command centers with the HIMARS, which are well past the front lines.
The Hill has cited a senior US defense official who said Ukraine is now having "a good deal of success" with the recently deployed HIMARS rockets, particularly in the hotspot of the current fighting, the Donbas in the east of the country.
"Because it is such a precise, longer-range system, Ukrainians are able to carefully select targets that will undermine the effort by Russia in a more systematic way, certainly than they would be able to do with the shorter-range artillery systems," the Pentagon official said further.
Six 200-pound rockets slammed into the Russian position, largely destroying it, said Lt. Koval, who commands 2 HIMARS batteries (launchers).

"What you see is the Ukrainians are actually systematically selecting targets and then accurately hitting them, thus providing this, you know, precise method of degrading Russian capability," the official added. "I see them being able to continue to use this throughout Donbas."
At the moment, only four are reportedly in use on the battlefield, after lately arriving, but four more were pledged to start last month. The somewhat slow rollout of the systems is related to the time gap of training Ukrainian operators on how to use them effectively.
A Russian field headquarters has been frustratingly beyond the range of Lt. Valentyn Koval’s Soviet-era artillery. That changed with the arrival of HIMARS. “We understand from this assistance that we’re not alone in this fight.” @stephenkalin https://t.co/JsWOHgbpNo July 2, 2022
The HIMARS being provided to the Ukrainians are estimated to be able to hit targets about 40 to 50 miles away, which from the administration's standpoint marks a significant improvement in range, but still makes it unlikely the missiles could be used to strike within Russian territory, which Biden had expressly said he wants to avoid.
The US has said that Ukraine's military leadership has provided "assurances" that it won't use the newly provided systems to attack Russian territory, amid persisting fears Washington and Moscow could enter a direct conflict.
What everybody must be aware of is that this is not a war to prevent Putin from occupying Ukraine, but an attempt by the evil Khazarian Jews/WEF/NATO to control yet another country in their growing New World Order. They are simply using Ukraine as a battlefield. Their plan is to destroy totally the world's economy and turn the population into slaves. Like the Freemasons, they have also life-threatening rules in their membership, one being REVENGE, 10 times harder than was ever perpetrated on them. Russia in particular, in the past, has expelled the Khazars several times. I have all of 7 detailed articles in book format on the Khazarian Jews if anybody is interested in further information. Putin, and earlier also Trump, are the ONLY Presidents who have enough guts to see what they are attempting to do to the world population and have sufficient courage to do something about it.
The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehavior acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
