Defense Express editor-in-chief Oleh Katkov says that the number of 48H6 missiles launched by Russia to attack Kyiv is measured in thousands and Russia continues to produce them

He shared the information on Espreso TV.

"As for the missiles that attacked Kyiv today, we are talking about a range of more than 280 km. That is, the range of these missiles is most likely more than 300 km. These missiles are still Soviet-made. Therefore, the number of them in Russia is significant," Katkov said.

The expert emphasized that Russia continues to produce 48N6 missiles.

"The Russian 48N6 missile, which Russia used to attack Kyiv, was the main missile of the S-400 complex. Although this missile was produced in the Soviet era, Russia continues to produce them. The exact number of these missiles is difficult to say. However, it is likely to be in the range of three zeros. That is, a thousand units, and Russia continues to produce them. Therefore, there is simply no point in counting them," he added.

  • On the night of Wednesday, December 13, explosions were heard in Kyiv. Russia attacked the Ukrainian capital with ballistic missiles from the S-400 complex, and fires broke out in several districts as a result of shrapnel falling in residential buildings. There are 53 known casualties.
