Situation report day 160

By Jordi Bou

August 2, 2022 - The United States has announced a new tranche of weapons for Ukraine’s forces, including ammunition for increasingly important HIMARS long-range rocket systems.

The new $550m package will “include more ammunition for the high mobility advanced rocket systems otherwise known as HIMARS, as well as ammunition” for artillery, National Security Council Spokesperson John Kirby told reporters.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Antony Blinken has accused Russia of using Ukraine's biggest nuclear power plant in Zaporizhya as a “nuclear shield” by stationing troops there, preventing Ukrainian forces from returning fire and risking a terrible nuclear accident.
