"Russia is trying but has been unable to target Western weapons flowing into Ukraine, including longer-range systems that Kyiv hopes will be decisive on the battlefield," the agency quoted a Pentagon spokesperson as saying.
On June 23, Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov stated that Ukraine had already received U.S.-made HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems. Meanwhile, Russian propagandists have repeatedly tried to disseminate fake news about how Russia’s military has allegedly "destroyed" weapons supplied to Ukraine by Western partners.
Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar also said that Russia was making every effort to disrupt arms supplies to Ukraine, and that the aggressor country's agents were now operating in various countries.
A Washington Post investigation, published on June 24, revealed that Russia has been working to weaken Ukraine’s military logistical supply chains for nearly a decade, via intimidation and sabotage campaigns across Ukraine.
