Massive missile attacks on Ukraine may last long — Defense Express
Defense Express expert Ivan Kyrychevskyi said that Russia has retained the capability to launch massive missile attacks across Ukraine for a long time
He expressed this opinion on the Espreso TV channel
"I think that, unfortunately, Russia will have enough resources to maintain this pace of massive attacks across the territory of Ukraine at least until spring. Because, despite the production figures, they can launch up to 100 missiles at a time, and they still have the capability and reserves for 2-3 massive attacks. This applies to almost all types of their missiles. They did not 'unpack' the stockpile of Kalibr missiles, which they could have accumulated up to 200 units," Kyrychevskyi said.
The expert emphasized that Russia's arsenal includes missiles that have yet to be shot down by Ukrainian air defense.
"We talk about the Kinzhal as an extremely dangerous missile, but the Ukrainian Air Force can be proud of the number of missiles of this type that have been shot down. However, there are missiles that we have not yet managed to intercept. In particular, the Kh-22/32. This is a converted missile with advanced electronics. This missile can hit at a greater distance. It seems that this is the missile that reached Cherkasy region on December 29," he added.
- On the night of December 29, Russia launched several groups of Shahed drones that attacked Ukraine, and in the morning Russian terrorists launched missiles, hitting high-rise buildings, educational institutions, a shopping centre and a maternity hospital.
- On the morning of January 2, Russian forces attacked Ukraine from strategic aviation. A series of explosions occurred in Kyiv and Kharkiv. The attack resulted in dead and wounded people and destroyed houses.
