Russia deploys hard-to-intercept ballistic missiles — Ukrainian Armed Forces officer
Russia has changed its tactics of attacking Ukraine, relying on ballistic missiles that are difficult to shoot down. The military called on Ukrainians to be more conscious during air raid alerts
Andriy Kovalenko, a lieutenant with the Ukrainian Armed Forces, deputy head of the Center for Countering Disinformation, and Dmytro "Diplomat", an officer of the 12th Azov Brigade of the National Guard of Ukraine, made the statements, Ukrinform reports.
"We have been preparing for this, we have been supplied with more missile defense systems. Of course, we need even more supplies, but our society still lives in the paradigm that Shaheds are shot down, cruise missiles are shot down, and during air raid alarms, many people feel too much at ease," said Andriy Kovalenko, deputy head of the Center for Countering Disinformation.
He also added that Ukrainians need to change their attitude to air raid alarms, based on the fact that Russia has begun to use ballistic missiles more to strike Ukraine.
Kovalenko believes that Russia's goal is to "suppress Ukraine's air defense systems in order to launch missiles at us in the future and then dictate their terms."
