Four additional HIMARS reactive artillery systems transferred to the USA have arrived in Ukraine.
This was reported by the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov.
The minister also announced the arrival of the German air defense system IRIS-T.
Earlier, Der Spiegel, citing sources, wrote that Ukraine received the first of the four promised such systems.
Reznikov added that the American air defense systems NASAMS are on the approach. The US is already accelerating the delivery of two systems.
- These four HIMARS and their ammunition were part of a new military aid package for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
- On September 12, German Ambassador to Ukraine Anka Feldhusen said that Germany plans to hand over four IRIS-T air defense systems to Ukraine. Two of them will be handed over by the end of 2022.
