Ukraine showcases British Brimstone missiles in action

Ukraine has displayed its devastating British-made Brimstone missiles in action as the weapons are used against Russian forces.

The weapon has been adapted to be fired from small vehicles on the Ukrainian battlefield instead of being used normally from fighter jets, drones or warships.

Video footage released by the Ukrainian Defense Ministry is said to show the Brimstone and also the new-generation man-portable anti-tank weapon NLAW.

A statement from the forces said: “Since the first days of the open invasion of Russia, the support of our foreign partners has played an important role in the fight against the enemy forces.

“The weapons, the material and technical means that brother countries provide us are our strength on the road to victory.

“We are learning fast and learning new weapons.

“And foreign instructors help us master them without delay.

“After all, we are fighting not only for land.

“We fight for our principles, history, meanings, for the very existence of the Ukrainian people, their values ​​and freedom.

“And we are grateful that on this path, the partner states of the free world provide us with titanic support.

“Together for Victory”.

The Brimstone entered service in 2005 with an updated version supplied to the RAF six years ago.

You can attack using laser homing guidance or autonomous targeting.

In another video, said to have been released by Ukrainian forces, it claims to show the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol hit with phosphorus firebombs by Vladimir Putin’s forces.

Ukrainian forces are believed to be sheltering there from Russian bombardment.

“The Russian military itself claims that 9M22S incendiary shells with thermite coatings were used,” the Ukrainians said.

“The combustion temperature is about 2-2.5 thousand degrees Celsius.

“It is almost impossible to stop the burning,” said Petr Andryushchenko, adviser to the mayor of Mariupol.

The Mirror reported yesterday how Russia made new threats to use its Satan-2 hypersonic nuclear missile which it claims hits Britain in just 200 seconds.

Finland, which is about to join NATO, would be completely annihilated in just 10 seconds, said Aleksey Zhuravlyov, deputy chairman of the Russian parliament’s defense committee.

His savage threats came as top Russian officials seemed frustrated by Vladimir Putin’s lack of military progress in Ukraine and infuriated by the show of Western unity against them.

Zhuravlyov, 59, stated in an interview: “If Finland wants to join this bloc, then our goal is absolutely legitimate: to question the existence of this state. This is logical.

“If the United States threatens our state, it is good: here is the Sarmat [known in the West as Satan-2] for you, and there will be nuclear ashes from you if you believe that Russia should not exist.

“And Finland says that it is one with the United States. Well, get in line.”
