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.
