Some of Ukraine’s Western allies have given permission to use their weapons for attacks on Russian territory.

Last week, Ukraine received permission from most of its allies to strike military targets on Russian territory. In particular, we are talking about the USA, Great Britain, France, Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Norway. Only Italy and Belgium have banned attacks on Russian territory with their weapons.

According to Forbes, less than a day has passed since Joe Biden authorized the use of HIMARS installations to destroy targets in enemy territory when the first strike took place. What is known about him is more than the story.

First goal

As the publication notes, during the night from Friday to Saturday, Ukrainian defenders fired HIMARS missiles at the base of the invaders in the Belgorod region. The Telegraph, citing Russian propagandists, also confirmed the attack.

“The enemy has started using Western-made weapon systems to attack the “old” territory of Russia,” the media quoted Russian military commander Poddubny as saying.


Independent analysts from OSINTdefender studied the photos of missile debris presented by Poddubny and agreed that they were indeed removed from an American MLRS. Experts identified them as GMLRS guided missiles launched from M142 HIMARS.

“This is the first time that the Ukrainian Armed Forces used US-supplied weapons on Russian territory overnight. The results of this attack are not yet known, however, it appears that at least 8 missiles were launched from the Kharkov region,” OSINTdefender said in a statement.

However, as The Telegraph notes, Ukrainian officials remain silent on this matter.

“Ukraine has not commented on the strike,” the publication added.

According to some Ukrainian Telegram channels, the Iskander-M OTRK was destroyed as a result of the strike.

Today the Russian media showed the consequences of the HIMARS strike. In particular, the S-300/400 air defense system was destroyed as a result of the attack.

Effect on supply base

In addition, there is information that on June 2, the Ukrainian Armed Forces launched a new attack on military targets in the Belgorod region. Analysts at the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) have yet to find any evidence that Ukraine used Western weapons for this, but they have quoted Russian so-called military bloggers as saying that HIMARS is the carried out an attack.

In particular, propagandists claim that Ukrainian troops attacked the city of Shebekino in the Belgorod region using American MLRS. As a result of the strike, the deputy chairman of the Korochansky district, Igor Nechiporenko, was killed, and several district and village leaders were injured.

A number of local Telegram channels reported that the Ukrainian Armed Forces attacked a Russian supply base in the industrial area of ​​Shebekinoye.

“Ukraine officials did not comment on these strikes in this report, and ISW could not independently confirm the systems used for these strikes or the targets of these strikes. The ISW did not find any evidence that the Ukrainian forces used weapons provided by the West in these strikes “, said a report from analysts at the Institute for the Study of War.

What else could come

BBC journalists believe that US President Joe Biden has imposed some restrictions on Ukraine and has not allowed the Ukrainian Armed Forces to launch strikes deep into Russian territory. Therefore, according to the publication, this is the reason why Washington did not include long-range weapons such as ATACMS in its authorization. These are ballistic missiles with a range of 300 km and can hit enemy military bases and airfields.

“Such restrictions only leave Ukraine the opportunity to focus on targets close to its border but this is a serious change in the policy of Kyiv’s main allies. Even with a shorter range of up to 70 km , multiple rocket launch systems such as HIMARS significantly disrupt Russian logistics operations and troop movements, which will ultimately slow down any offensive plans,” the journalists summarized.

In addition, according to the BBC, citing a military aviation official, France has given permission to the Ukrainian Armed Forces to use long-range Storm Shadow/SCALP missiles on Russian territory.

As is known, the range of action of Storm Shadow missiles can reach 250 km. So, the Ukrainian military can strike at the airfields in Kursk and Belgorod regions.
