Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Russia has fired up to 60% of all its missiles at Ukraine.
Most of all, the aggressor used ballistic missiles against the Iskander complex. Therefore, the use of this type of weapon has not been recorded for a long time, said the representative of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Vadym Skibitskyi.
“Regarding high-precision weapons, as Russia claims, these are the Iskander, Kalibr systems, air-launched cruise missiles – Kh101, Kh555. According to our calculations, 55 to 60% of the pre-war reserves have been used today,” said Vadym Skibitsky.
Due to international sanctions, Russia has problems in the production of new missiles. However, it has enough old Soviet stocks.
“These are cruise missiles, the same X22. Which, including, have already been used twice from Belarus. Other cruise missiles, a full set of rockets – “Smerch”, “Hurricane”, BM-21 “Grad”, various types of aerial bombs. All that is left of the Soviet Union, and the reserves are very large, and it is very difficult to calculate how much is left there,” Skibitsky added.
Also, a representative of the military intelligence of Ukraine reported that the statement of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov that the “special operation” went beyond the borders of the “DNR” and “LNR” means, in particular, the creation of a basis for resolving the status of the temporarily occupied territories in the south of Ukraine.
“What does Lavrov’s statement mean, which he made, by the way, other high-ranking officials of the Russian Federation also spoke about such possibilities. It means one thing, now the basis is being created for deciding the fate or deciding the status of the temporarily occupied territories of our state in the south, this is primarily the Kherson region and part of the Zaporizhia region,” Vadym Skibitskyi said.
The representative of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine added that Russia is preparing the international community to help the Russian-speaking population, citizens living in the temporarily occupied territories.
