Storm Shadow's accuracy in Ukraine was "virtually unmistakable"

Jun 26, 2023

At a hearing in the House of Commons of the British Parliament on Monday, British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace noted the impact of long-range Storm Shadow missiles on the course of the war in Ukraine.

This was reported by a correspondent of the European Pravda.

According to Wallace, the provision of Storm Shadow missiles to Kyiv "had a significant impact on the battlefield" in Ukraine.

"As far as I know, their accuracy and ability to effectively hit the target as intended by the Ukrainians were almost unmistakable," he added, explaining that the use of Storm Shadow affected the logistics and operational and tactical control of the Russian army.

"This shows the importance of defeating the deep rear, and we encourage international partners to provide Ukraine with their long-range systems," the official said.


He recalled that the decision of the UK, the US, and other countries to provide Ukraine with multiple launch rocket systems - HIMARS, MLRS, etc. - last summer also affected the military success of Ukrainians and forced the Russians to move their command posts deeper into the rear.

"The key here is to realize that if the Russians move out of range, we have to work together to provide the equipment to bring them back into range (of the Ukrainians - Ed.)," Wallace summarized.

Separately, the head of the British Ministry of Defense noted that London continues to be "recognized as a leading state in terms of providing military assistance to Ukraine."

"We have trained 17,000 troops and provided over £2.3 billion in military aid last year and this year. We have sent hundreds of thousands of artillery munitions, thousands of missiles, and hundreds of armored vehicles, and played a leading role in providing Ukraine with equipment such as MLRS multiple launch rocket systems, Challenger 2 tanks, and Storm Shadow missiles," he listed.
