The newspaper reports that the Ukrainians have made many wooden copies of the HIMARS multiple launch rocket system and “deployed” them in various parts of the front line.
The goal was to cause Russian high-precision missiles to fire on these “installations”, to force the RF Armed Forces to spend expensive and scarce precision-guided missiles and take real HIMARS out of attack.
A Ukrainian spokesman said: “When a Russian drone sees HIMARS, it is a VIP target for it.” . The Ukrainians liked these results and they “expanded production”. This largely explains Russian claims that many HIMARS installations have been destroyed. An American diplomat says: “they claim to have destroyed more HIMARS than we delivered to Ukraine”.
