The remains of an American AGM-88 HARM anti-radar missile were discovered at one of the positions of the Russian military.

A number of photos with the remains of this missile, taken at the positions of Russian troops, appeared on the social network .

Presumably, the Ukrainian Air Force used these missiles against Russian air defense systems.

An inscription on a piece of the tail that remained revealed the belonging of the remains to this type of rocket.

There is also no official information that the USA or another country supplied Ukraine with AGM-88 HARM. However, Defense Minister of Ukraine Reznikov has repeatedly stated that he expects the delivery of such missiles.

" And you definitely saw the announced package, if I'm not mistaken, for 270 million dollars with the signature of the President of the United States that we will get four more HIMARS, we will get special anti-radar missiles that we had before. This will allow you and I to effectively destroy their radar system, essentially blinding the enemy, which will give us the opportunity to gain an advantage for a counteroffensive ," Reznikov said in July.
