Defense of Ukraine posts whimsical clip of Russian destruction

Ukraine’s Defense Ministry praised its use of High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) against Russian forces in a whimsical clip shared on the ministry’s official Twitter account on Friday.

“HIMARS has talent! When used by #UAarmy [Ukrainian Army]it’s more than just a talent,” the ministry tweeted, adding a clip America’s Got Talent, featuring a HIMARS animation as the cast member auditioning before the judges. The animated idea and video were created by Twitter users Holy Spear.

“Russia has invaded Ukraine and is causing untold pain to the Ukrainian people and I know it America’s Got Talent is one of the biggest stages in the world and I just thought I could make a big impact with my performance,” the animated HIMARS told the judges, adding that his performance would include an attack on Russian forces.

In recent months, Ukraine has used US-supplied M142 HIMARS to attack Russian bases and weapons depots. Ukraine also used HIMARS to hit bridges across the Dnieper River, separating the Kherson region, which fell to Russia earlier in the invasion, from the main area of ​​Russian-controlled territory south of the river.

The US said it had deployed a total of 16 HIMARS along with Ukraine’s Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov Confirmation that the first systems arrived on 23.6.

Russia has repeatedly said that its forces destroyed HIMARS, however none of these claims have been independently verified. Last week, the Russian Defense Ministry said it had intercepted 44 Ukrainian HIMARS missiles in southern Ukraine, but officials did not claim to have hit any of the launchers themselves.

In a press conference, ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said: “In the areas of the city of Kherson, Novaya Kakhovka, the Kherson region, the Antonovsky bridge and the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, three Ukrainian Tochka-U ballistic missiles were also intercepted in the air B 53 projectiles from Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (MLRS). Among them: 44 – HIMARS, five ‘Alder’ and four ‘Hurricane’.”

Meanwhile, Ukraine has reported that it has recently made some successful advances against Russian forces towards Kherson, where it is attempting to launch a counteroffensive to retake it.
