Over 70 HIMARS rockets and two HIMARS launchers are claimed to be destroyed in a missile strike against the ArcelorMittal plant in Krivoi Rog in Ukraine, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Igor Konashenkov said Wednesday.
"According to confirmed information, a strike by ground-based high-precision weapons against a missile/artillery armament depot in one of the workshops of the ArcelorMittal metallurgical plant in the city of Krivoi Rog destroyed over 70 rockets of the HIMARS multiple launch rocket system and two multiple rocket launchers," the spokesman said in comments quoted in several Russian media.
Also, four other multiple launch rocket systems were damaged in the strike, the general added.
"In the Kupyansk direction, preemptive artillery fire, strikes by aircraft and heavy flamethrower systems against the amassed Ukrainian manpower and equipment in the areas of the settlements of Olshana, Kislovka and Berestovoye in the Kharkov Region and Novosyolovskoye in the Lugansk People’s Republic thwarted the enemy’s attempts to attack the Russian troop positions," the spokesman said.
During the battles, Russian forces eliminated as many as 70 Ukrainian troops, an infantry fighting vehicle, an MT-LB transporter, two 2S-1 Gvozdika self-propelled artillery guns and three motor vehicles, the general specified.
Russian forces obliterated two US-made AN/TPQ-50 counter-battery radars of the Ukrainian army in the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Kharkov Region in the past day, Konashenkov reported.
