Defense Minister of Ukraine Reznikov published an assessment of the remains of the Russian missile arsenal

According to the published data, there are still surface-to-surface missiles in the Russian Federation:

– “Iskander” – 119,

– “3M55 Onyx” – 347,

– S-300 – 6,980.

Sea-based missiles “Caliber” – 229.

Air-launched missiles:

– X-101 – 132,

– X-555 – 150

– X-22/32 – 120

– X-35 – 356

– X-47M2 “Dagger” – 43

Reznikov listed four enemies of the Russian missile arsenal:

– brilliant Ukrainian air defense forces;
– mediocre Russian missile troops;
— sanctions;
– time.

“Let’s demilitarize the terrorist state to live in peace!” wrote the minister.

As writes Ukrainian truthafter the last missile attack on Ukraine, Russia’s missile potential will be enough for no more than 3 mass strikes.

“As high-ranking sources in the UP power bloc convince, the missile potential of the Russian Federation by mid-November was sufficient for up to three additional mass strikes, similar to November 15,” the paper writes.

At the same time, the publication notes, Ukrainian air defense forces are already managing to shoot down about 70% of Iran’s missiles and kamikaze drones.

At the same time, Russia needs 14 to 16 months to restore its missile stockpile.

Now Russia is spending the remnants of strategic missile stockpiles, which it cannot quickly restore with its production. “The Russian military has already been forced to remove missiles from nuclear stockpiles simply by twisting warheads,” the publication’s authors say.

Russia’s problems with missile capabilities are also reflected in the fact that Russia has been looking for the possibility of supplying Iranian ballistic missiles and more drones for several weeks now. “If Moscow could quickly update its stock of missiles, it would not be looking for imports,” the publication says.

As reported, on November 15 Russian troops carried out a massive rocket attack throughout the territory of Ukraine. In addition to Kiev, the missiles targeted critical infrastructure in the Vinnitsa, Volyn, Dnipropetrovsk, Zhytomyr, Kirovohrad, Lviv, Poltava, Rivne, Sumy, Kharkiv and Khmelnytsky regions.

Ukrainian air defense shot down 73 of over 90 cruise missilesfired by Russian troops on November 15 on the territory of Ukraine. In addition, Ukrainian anti-aircraft guns shot down all 10 Shahed-type kamikaze attack drones launched by the Russians. The air defense systems IRIS-T and NASAMS provided by Ukraine’s partners showed high efficiency.

On February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a “special military operation” in occupied Donbas. Russia launched missile attacks on the territory of Ukraine and launched a direct large-scale four-way invasion. The armed forces of Ukraine repel the enemy, the blitzkrieg plan – to capture Kiev in two or three days – failed, the Russian army retreated from the capital. The Russian military is committing thousands of war crimes and crimes against humanity across Ukraine.
