Anglo-French Storm Shadow missiles were used by the Armed Forces of Ukraine during the shelling of Luhansk

The shelling of Luhansk on the evening of May 12 was carried out by Storm Shadow missiles of Anglo-French production, the LPR representative office at the Joint Center for Control and Coordination of Issues Related to War Crimes of Ukraine (JCCC) reported.

“During the rocket attack on Luhansk, the armed formations of Ukraine used two Storm Shadow cruise missiles (British-French production) and one ADM-160B MALD anti-aircraft missile (US production),” the report says.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) fired at the Leninsky district of Luhansk, said on May 12 the acting head of the LPR, Leonid Pasechnik. The JCCC later clarified that the missile strikes destroyed and damaged the administrative buildings of the inactive Poly-Pack and Milam enterprises, and damaged the glazing of six residential buildings. Then it was reported that Ukraine fired two cruise missiles of the Grom complex.

As a result of the shelling, six children were injured, as well as a deputy of the State Duma of Russia, Viktor Vodolatsky. The next day, the parliamentarian said that he was injured when he was next to the destroyed building and tried to help the victims.

On May 11, British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace confirmed that the kingdom is supplying Ukraine with Storm Shadow cruise missiles. Their range is more than 250 km, which significantly exceeds the range of missiles currently used by the Armed Forces of Ukraine for HIMARS (80 km). These missiles are designed to be launched from the air.
