On Wednesday, the Russian Ministry of Defense published footage showing the “Grad and Uragan” multiple-rocket system (MLRS), targeting Ukrainian strongholds and military equipment in the direction of Donetsk and on the right bank of the Dnipro River.

An official statement issued by the Russian Ministry of Defense said that the “Grad” multiple rocket launch system, belonging to the forces of the Southern District, struck the positions of units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the direction of Donetsk.”

He added, “The artillery units of the Northern Group forces continue to launch precise strikes on military installations, sites, and fortifications.”

The statement continued: “The Uragan multiple rocket launcher system, affiliated with the Dnipro Forces Artillery Unit, carries out firing missions day and night, to destroy vehicles, armored vehicles, ammunition depots and fortifications belonging to the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the right bank of the Dnipro River.”

This comes as Blinken affirmed, during his visit to Kiev on Tuesday, Washington’s permanent support for Ukraine, and that “billions of dollars in American military aid provided to Kiev will make a qualitative difference on the field.”
