US-Supplied HIMARS MLRS Kills, Injures Hundreds Of Civilians Across Donbass And Southern Ukraine

Illustrative Image

Written by Drago Bosnic, independent geopolitical and military analyst

In early June, it was reported that the United States, NATO and other satellite states will be sending billions worth of additional weapons, including the HIMARS MLRS to the Kiev regime in yet another desperate attempt to buy the Neo-Nazi junta more time, as it’s facing an imminent defeat across all frontlines from northern areas of Kharkov oblast to the western fringes of Kherson oblast. At the time, Western state-run mainstream media were claiming that the system is a supposed “game-changer” and that it would not only “slow down or halt Russian advance”, but also “help push back” the Russian military by enabling the Kiev regime forces to mount “decisive counteroffensives”.

Needless to say, none of this happened. But what did happen was more of the same coming from the Kiev regime – using any weapon at its disposal to target residential areas and infrastructure. To make matters even worse, the Kiev regime is now targeting not only Donbass, but even the regions which were under its jurisdiction just 4 months ago, the Kherson and Zaporozhye oblasts. In addition to the “regular” shelling of Donetsk and the surrounding areas, a nearly decade-long “normal” occurrence for people there, the Kiev regime is now using the US-supplied M142 HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket System) MLRS against the DPR’s (Donetsk People’s Republic) capital, in addition to other places in the area.

On Sunday, July 10, one such strike claimed the lives of at least three civilians and injured over 40 others, according to a report by DPR authorities. According to their representatives from the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination on Ceasefire (JCCC), the July 10 Ukrainian missile strike hit the DPR’s Amvrosievsky district, which borders Russia’s southwestern Rostov oblast. In addition to those killed and wounded, at least four people were reported missing. Other attacks on civilians (including children) across the Donbass republics (particularly the DPR) were also reported.

Still, in addition to these attacks, the Kiev regime has also been shelling settlements in southern Ukraine, which it held until late February. For this purpose, it has not just been using conventional artillery, but also MLRS and short-range ballistic missiles, such as “Tochka-U”. In one such attack, at least 7 people died and nearly 100 were wounded after Kiev regime forces hit a residential area with HIMARS MLRS.

The administration office of the Kherson oblast confirmed that the attack on Novaya Kakhovka was conducted by using the US-made MLRS. According to the local officials, Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power plant was the intended target, but the rockets hit a warehouse housing saltpetre and fertilizer, damaging a hospital, a market and residential buildings, according to the Head of Novaya Kakhovka, Vladimir Leontiev. In addition to other areas hit by these rockets, a humanitarian aid depot with over 35 tons of food and other necessities was also damaged in the explosion. According to local sources, all windows within a two-kilometer radius were shattered.

In other areas, specifically northern Kharkov oblast, Kiev regime artillery units shelled EMERCOM’s (Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations) humanitarian convoy in the settlement of Kozacha Lopan. According to local sources, two civilians were killed as a result, while Neo-Nazi junta infiltrators have also killed the mayor of Velykyi Burluk. He was executed for allegedly “collaborating” with Russian forces. In the south, Kiev regime forces hit Tokmak in the central part of Zaporozhye oblast. Russian air defense systems intercepted the missiles and rockets, but the fragments still fell on the city. Luckily, no civilian casualties were reported.

Neo-Nazi junta forces also hit the airfield in Chernobaevka on the westernmost fringes of the Kherson oblast. Reportedly, there was a massive explosion in the facility. Ukrainian rocket artillery also shelled the Russian-held Snigirevka in the Nikolayev oblast. There was also an assassination attempt on the head of the Kherson region Vladimir Saldo, but was prevented by Russian special services. Bomb disposal units disarmed the roadside IED planted to kill Saldo. A Kiev regime forces strike drone was also shot down over Melitopol, Vladimir Rogov, a member of the Zaporozhye oblast administration reported.

Russian Armed Forces responded with a number of strikes against the Kiev regime troops, including the launch of a strike near Radushnoe in the Krivoy Rog rayon of the Dnepropetrovsk oblast. Reportedly, ammunition depots housing rockets and artillery shells for the US-supplied M142 HIMARS MLRS, M777 and Ukrainian 2C7 howitzers were destroyed. Also, in Nechayane, another ammunition storage was destroyed by a Russian missile strike. Last week, the Russian military posted a video of the destruction of two US-supplied HIMARS MLRS, near the frontline in a settlement just south of Kramatorsk. In addition, LPR troops damaged and later captured one of the US-made M777 howitzers and posted a video of the artillery piece.

What is certainly clear from all this is that the so-called “game-changers” and “Wunderwaffen” the political West has been sending for the last 8 years, but especially in recent months, have done virtually nothing to make the Kiev regime troops a more effective fighting force. What these weapons have contributed to is the death and maiming of civilians and the destruction of their property and infrastructure, not just in Donbass, but in other areas as well. However, this should not be surprising to anyone, as the Neo-Nazi junta announced their intention of exterminating the “Untermenschen” in southern and eastern Ukraine back in 2013, before the US-orchestrated coup brought them to power.

How can these stupid ukronazis defeat the RF troops if they’re targeting residential areas instead of advancing Russian soldiers.

jens holm

Its because they dont or partly do. Their bombardments are based on drones and other kinds of information.

They often also are forced to hit targets more accurate the Russians . So they hit real targets relative well.But civilians sometimes are there too.

Its a classic one. You cant avoid it 100% but You can try. Your best.

The russians dont like the arrived artillery and Himars very much. Thats the point here.

I think that Russia’s disconnection with Europe is a false history writing and clearly a sign of Vladolf Putlers immaturity. It is now important that Vladolf disappear and Russia gets denazified and a neutralized military zone. This would be the best solution for all involved.

The thing is Russia is deadly serious. It’s absolutely compacting itself into a very effective force in Ukraine, adapting its tactics to get better outcomes – Indeed Russia is doing Agile – do, learn and adapt, and is setting itself to take on all comers. Indeed that is exactly what it is doing, setting itself up to visibly defeat NATO in Ukraine by showing, no matter what, Russia will achieve its stated objectives. That Russia is independent and sovereign and acts independently of western interests, mandates or controls. Indeed one of the biggest losers in this special operation has been western influence over other countries and the world in general. Opportunities now exist for a true multipolar world. I truly believe there is no other country on earth that could have taken on the west, in such a focused, serious and managed fashion to get both liberation of Ukraine from the Nazis, and liberation of vast swathes of the world from Western hegemony and oppression.

jens holm

None has blamed Russians for being in their own country and stay there. You see propaganda ghosts only.

A usual You make the old fictions such as we are bipolar and hegemony. The world is not like that at all and has not been for years.

The facts are Russia dont accept the agreements from most of the rest of the world. So why should they be members?

The only real gamechanger is China. But compared to Russia and parts of ME they also make the cake to share bigger. I like that. The chinese nor seemes to have a more descent life even they also are indoctrinated hard.

I am surprised you didn’t send him to Yugoslavia – you know that country attacked by western aggression, you now the war that formed Kosovo – the incident that was warned about – that it would rip up the rule book around sovereignty….. It was the West thinking they owned the rules through hegemony that created the instability in the world. I could go on with Iraq, Afghanistan…… Where the west never stayed in their countries – but the list is truly endless – the truth now – the bulk of the population of the world don’t follow the West anymore! Its G20 now and that is the new reality! Ghost7 is just a thing of the past – like western Hegemony – weaponizing the dollar – wasn’t a good Idea, weaponizing trade, again not a good idea when your global power depends on both!

AM Hants

Yeah, which is why the G7 members, who only make up 11% of the world population, but, own 80% world debt, and have 30% world GDP are against Russia and the other 89% of the population, with just 20% of world debt and healthy GDP Debt ratios, are behind Russia.

Sick punishment I guess. They expected popular resistance like in the North (around Chernigov etc) but instead people welcomed Russians as liberators. Now Zelensky&co use NATO weapons to slaughter them just like in Donetsk for 8 years. Genocidal policy fully approved/supported by Washington.

Most of the people there also has been evacuated and millions are not even in coutry. So You write lies and garbage.

I see none of that. Its a complicated difficult position to be in warmode. Mistakes are done too. Some can be solved better by Zelinsky and the Parlament.

I see no hate. I see a very determinant population, which even has included some nazis for self defence.

That bad ones arethe invaders. Maybee some 60.000 are killed there. It done by Russian reasons. Ukriane by UN has been a country for 30 years. Russia as well as wee had accepted they shouldremain Neutral.

By that we see Ukraine as a tradepartner as well as it goes also having many internal problems.

So far Putin has united west and many more better then Biden. Sweden and Finland are de facto members of Nato. As dane I like that unification. Thank You Putin.

Didn’t Porkie, back in May 2014, receive instructions from the Rand Corporation, ordering the genocide and ethnic cleansing of the Ukraine population?

In 2016, Oleg Tsarov, stated that over 100,000 lives were lost, in the Ukrainian Civil War, times 9, life changing injuries, which brings deaths and injuries from 2014 -2016 to a million and then you had around 2.5 million displaced. The UN used a different set of figures, which left so many sectors of Ukraine Society out and were more Conservative.

Besides the 14,000 dead Russian speaking citizens, or 100,000 Ukrainian citizens, who lost their lives, courtesy the Kiev Government, following the violent coup d’etat, there is now virtually no gene pool left in Ukraine. So I guess the Rand Corporation got what they wanted, even if it took longer than planned.

Zelensky’s presidential residence, government and ministries, perhaps even Verkhovna Rada/parliament. All should be targeted. Sure, Zelensky is not there, but these are symbols of the regime and they should be destroyed. Hit the British embassy as an example. By “mistake” of course. US did this to China in Serbia in 1999. US/UK criminals only understand force.

The Zakota combined rail & road bridge south of Odessa was repeatedly hit but they kept fixing it. Don’t see any recent reports about it’s current status from a quick look online. Perhaps it’s easier to use remote surveillance to spot things like Himars going by, then destroy those?

Thinking about it, it might be difficult to ensure civilians were not on a bridge if using a missile that takes a few minutes to reach the target, and others might fall through the hole before the road is shut, and many are pro-Russian or neutral.

Russia resolve in fighting against the Ukro Nazis is because of the shelling of civilians and they claim that shelling them even more is to deter Russia from fighting against them? Rather, Russia wants to wipe them out. As Jews are leading the show, could it be that they WANT the Nazis wiped out. Is the Western promulgation of this conflict to ensure the Ukrainians are almost wiped out and weaken the Russians?
