U.S.-made weaponry is especially effective as it can be quickly fired and then rapidly move on to another location before enemy troops can locate it and return fire.

At the same time, on New Year’s Eve, Russian missiles and waves of Iranian-made Shahed drones rained on Ukraine nationwide. At least two people were killed and at least 28 were wounded as eight massive explosions rocked the city of Kyiv.

“Russian terrorists were pathetic, and they entered this year staying the same,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in his nightly address Sunday.
