US Congress: HIMARS systems and Mi-17 helicopters are already in Ukraine

According to a report, published by the US Congress, the amount of military assistance to Ukraine from August 2021 is $4.2 billion. But what is more interesting, in the list of equipment as of June 1, 2022, already provided to the Armed Forces, you can see M142 HIMARS and 20 Мі-17 helicopters.

And although the exact number of already transferred M142 HIMARS is not specified in the report, most likely it is at least a battery, i.e. 6 launchers. As for the Mi-17, the number of 16 vehicles was mentioned, and as it turned out – 20 of them, and they are already in Ukraine.

In total, the report mentions the following weapons, which have already been handed over to Ukraine:

  • HIMARS highly mobile artillery missile systems and ammunition;
  • 1,400+ Stinger MANPADS; ;
  • 6,500+ Javelin anti-tank missiles and more than 20,000 other anti-tank systems;
  • 21+ Phoenix Ghost drones;;
  • 700+ Switchblade drones;
  • 108 155-mm howitzers and 220,000 shells to them;
  • 20 Mi-17 helicopters;
  • hundreds of Humvee armored vehicles;
  • 200 M113 armored personnel carriers;
  • more than 7,000 small arms and more than 50 million ammunition;
  • laser-guided missile systems;
  • other non-lethal equipment, including communications and intelligence.

One could tell Germany to learn from this example, but it makes no sense.
Thanks, USA!
