Ali on Ukraine's use of U.S. weapons

October 6, 2022 Newsweek

Using the M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) sent by the U.S., Ukraine has made impressive gains in the war against Russia. Javed Ali, associate professor of practice, comments to Newsweek about their use and impact in the war. 

"The use of HIMARS, combined with other Western-supplied weapons and equipment, an evolving Ukrainian military strategy and increased successes at the operational and tactical level, and the continued shortcomings and weaknesses in Russia's efforts, have contributed to what appears to be more momentum on the side of Ukraine at the moment with the possibility of Russia losing more control of previously captured territory in Eastern Ukraine," Ali said.
