Ukraine’s Air Force spokesman Yuriy Ihnat said this during the telethon.

According to Ihnat, it is currently difficult to say how many long-range missiles Russia is ready to use during attacks. For example, Russian terrorists do not use Kinzhal hypersonic missiles very often.

"We saw the peak in May-June, when they attacked with Kinzhals, ballistics and cruise missiles simultaneously. They have enough aircraft for the Kinzhals, but not so many missiles," noted the Air Force spokesman.

According to Ihnat, official data from the Main Intelligence Directorate indicates that the Russians have about 900 high-precision long-range missiles - several hundred of each type. In particular, Russia continues to produce them, but not as many as last year.

"Therefore, the use of Iskander-M or S-400 ballistic missiles, as well as Kinzhals, is not something new for Ukraine. All this has been discussed many times before. That is why we have such a result today, everything can be shot down well," Ihnat summarized.

How many missiles does Russia produce?

In mid-November, Yuriy Ihnat said that the enemy could have accumulated up to 900 long-range precision missiles. According to the GUR, Ukrane’s military intelligence, Russia can produce about 100 missiles per month.

"Therefore, we can make a certain mathematical conclusion that 870 or maybe even 900 (missiles - ed.). This is the number of high-precision long-range missiles, in addition to aircraft missiles (Kh-59, Kh-31, Kh-35), as well as Onyx, S-300 missiles. We are talking only about long-range missiles," Ihnat explained.
