Vadym Skibitskyi, spokesperson of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine, told about Russia's current stockpile of long-range missiles and made a forecast of massive attacks on Ukraine

This is reported by the Telegram channel of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine.

"According to our estimate, Russia currently has about 950 high-precision missiles of operational and strategic level with a range of more than 350 kilometers. We observe a tendency that they usually try to keep their stockpile at the level of at least 900 missiles," Skibitskyi said. 

Also, according to him, the aggressor country plans to produce 40 Kh-101 missiles in April. He also made a forecast for the next massive attacks on Ukraine.

"We predict that the Russians will be able to carry out several more massive attacks (2-3 massive attacks), and then will be forced to take a break again to accumulate missiles and Shahed drones. However, some localized shelling may continue," Skibitskyi said.

The military intelligence also noted that since last year, Russian forces have hardly used Kalibr missiles.

"The aggressor is accumulating a stockpile of 3M14 Kalibr cruise missiles and has at least 260 units at its disposal. Moreover, they plan to produce 30 such missiles in April this year," said the representative of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine.

As for anti-ship missiles, the intelligence has learned that Russia is currently upgrading Oniks missiles, and has 440 units of conventional Oniks in its stockpile.

"As for the high-speed missiles flying from the south, it is currently difficult to determine whether they are Zircon missiles or upgraded Oniks," said Skibitskyi.

  • On April 1, it was reported that the Russian forces began to use Kalibr missiles less often to attack Ukraine due to logistical difficulties. Russian troops are trying to replace them with more effective types of missiles.
