NATO Ally Placing HIMARS Right on Putin's Front Door

One of Ukraine's key allies in NATO plans to place rocket launchers on its shared border with Russia.

On Thursday, Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak said his country intends to place a number of HIMARS rocket launchers at the Russian border. Blaszczak said the battery was acquired in 2019, and the announcement comes on the heels of Congress' approval of 500 HIMARS charging modules for Ukraine's defense.

"Until the end of 2023, the U.S. HIMARS rocket artillery systems will be at the disposal of the 16th mechanized division of the Polish army, which is deployed near the border with the Russia's Kaliningrad region," Blaszczak said Friday, noting the success of the system in Ukraine's air defenses.

The news comes one day after Blaszczak announced that the U.S. Department of State had approved the sale of 800 Hellfire missiles for use on a number of support helicopters.


Kaliningrad was once known as East Prussia. It was German for years until the Soviet Union seized it in WWII and expelled the native German population.
