Recent photos coming out of Luhansk after Ukrainian strikes have confirmed that UK-supplied “Storm Shadow” cruise missiles are being used against targets in the city.
Over the past few days, at least four strikes have been carried out against Russian logistical and repair targets, as well as the Luhansk Institute of Internal Affairs, which was being used to house Russian forces.
As stated in a previous article, US-supplied ADM-160 Miniature Air-Launched Decoy (MALD) missiles were used in tandem to help penetrate anti-air defenses over the city.

The use of Storm Shadow missiles were immediately suspected due to Luhansk being well outside of the range of US-supplied HIMARS. Debris photos now confirm their use, which can also target anywhere within Russian-controlled areas of Ukraine.
