That's according to Valeriy Zaluzhnyi, Commander-in-Chief of Ukraine's Armed Forces.

He also thanked the American people for providing the said weapons, adding that Ukraine's "goal is Victory."

Оn June 23, Ukraine's Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov said HIMARS launchers had already arrived in Ukraine.
