Russian Battery Of Msta-S Howitzers Unleashes Almighty Strike Against Ukrainian Targets

A shocking video shows Russian soldiers unleashing an attack against Ukrainian targets with the use of the Msta-S.

This is the moment Russian troops line up their Msta-S self-propelled howitzers and unleash a terrifying strike against Ukrainian targets.

The Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) said on June 10: “Combat work of the artillery units of the Airborne Forces during the special military operation [in Ukrainian territory].”

“Combat crews of Msta-S self-propelled howitzers traveled to the designated area, immediately took up firing positions, and struck at the identified enemy targets.”

The Russian military did not state where or when the attack took place.

We contacted Russian and Ukrainian officials for comment but had not received a reply at the time of writing.
