One user claimed that the new weaponry supplied to the Ukraine would not necessarily be instantly beneficial:

“9 launchers aren’t the problem. it’s how many rocket pods are supplied with them. Also targeting data.

Answering to the previous statement another Twitter user stated:

“That’s why these are delivered so slowly. Sure a bit too slow but these are easy to use. I think the ammunition will come exactly when needed being stored outside Ukraine (no I don’t have access to military secrets it’s my guess).

The footage of Ukraine’s 40th Artillery Brigade comes after Ukraine’s Defence Ministry shared footage of Russian tanks being destroyed by Ukraine’s 93rd Mechanised Brigade, as reported on Tuesday, July 5.
