"We're a very fast learner. Literally after a few cases of using a new munition, we create countermeasures and algorithms of operation. We will also shoot down ATACMS," he told RIA Novosti.

According to the officer, first of all, it is necessary to study the trajectory of the missile and understand its maneuverability and possible speed. It is also necessary to track the practical implementation of the launch.

Pulya added that the Russian air defense forces have already received the first information on ATACMS.

Earlier, the White House confirmed the transfer of ATACMS operational-tactical missiles to Ukraine.

Later, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the supply of ATACMS missiles to Kyiv is harmful and creates a new threat.

According to The Independent, the United States handed over short-range ATACMS to the Armed Forces of Ukraine out of fear of Russia.

At the same time, David Axe, in an article for Forbes, stressed that ATACMS will not help destroy Russian tanks.
