The Ukrainian HIMARS—or High Mobility Artillery Rocket System—can fire a missile barrage farther than its Russian equivalent. The weapons, obtained from the U.S., could be a game-changer. They’re also supposedly guided by secretive US assistance: intelligence on target locations.

The World’s host Carol Hills speaks with Brian Taylor, professor of political science, about the impact of the HIMARS on the war, and Putin’s message to ordinary Russians.
