Ukraine's armed forces have released footage – in the video above – showing the UK-provided M270 tracked missile launcher system in action on the eastern front of Ukraine.

They have been using the missile launcher to target Russian positions near Bakhmut, Kremmina and Soledar, according to the Ukraine armed forces.

The UK is the second-largest contributor of military assistance to Ukraine, providing lethal weaponry such as anti-tank missiles, artillery, air defence systems, armoured fighting vehicles, and anti-structure munitions, including three M270 long-range multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS).
