The Russian Ministry of Defense has claimed it has targeted and destroyed “155-mm M-777 howitzers” provided to Ukraine by the US and European allies, in a statement accompanying a video it released Wednesday.
Russian used high-precision artillery strikes to destroy the “155-mm howitzers made in the USA," its Ministry of Defense claimed.
It’s unclear how many M777 Howitzers were allegedly destroyed, but it’s not the first time Russia has made similar claims.
CNN has reached out to Ukrainian officials for comment on Russia’s claims but has yet to hear back.
CNN could not independently verify the destruction of M777 Howitzers, but it is widely understood that levels of attrition are high on both sides of the conflict.
