Russia claims it destroyed US-made Harpoon launchers in Ukraine

Samizdat | July 12, 2022

The Russian military says it has destroyed more US-made weapons in Ukraine. Several Harpoon anti-ship missile units were targeted by a ground-launched Iskander missile strike in Odessa Region, the defense ministry claimed on Tuesday during a daily briefing.

The report identified the location as being near the village of Berezan, some 20km northwest of the port city of Odessa. It offered no further details about the strike.

Last week, Russia claimed it destroyed two Harpoon missile systems near the village of Liman in the same region with a sea-launched missile strike.

The Harpoon is an anti-ship missile system made by Boeing. Several Western nations have supplied them to Ukraine. Officials in Kiev claimed that the weapon was a game-changer for the balance of military power in the Black Sea.

Some credited the threat posed by Western weapons, including the Harpoon, for Russia’s decision to withdraw from Snake Island two weeks ago. Moscow said it was a goodwill gesture meant to counter Ukrainian allegations that Russia was blocking grain exports from the country.

  1. “The Russian military says it has destroyed more US-made weapons in Ukraine”. “Last week, Russia claimed it destroyed two Harpoon missile systems near the village of Liman in the same region with a sea-launched missile strike.

    No problem, the American TAX PAYERS will pay for it all. “Too Easy”

    I wonder if it has ever occurred to the American/Israeli government in Washington, to start bombing Tax Havens around the World, to get Americans TAX Back for them???
    What a good idea….Any Takers?

  2. It’s ok, the US is the richest country in the world AND the last remaining SuperPower. They can afford to keep supplying the Ukraine with the high dollar, junk weaponry produced by their MIC until the last Ukrainian is dead in some field, somewhere. And president Joe Bitin’? You talk about a brave and shrewd, military tactician. Americans have NO idea how fortunate they are to be blessed with geriatric moron… Whoops!!! I meant leader like Joe Bitin’.

    • ‘Geriatric Joe’?…..How easy is it for the Military Industrial Complex to wheel out this aged Pensioner to “scare” America’s enemies with. Joe is just Ronald Reagan Mark II, only, Ronny could read an auto-cue better than joe can….
