Ukrainians should remain on guard, as Russia may unleash another mass missile strike on the country at any time, Natalia Humeniuk, spokeswoman for the Ukrainian military’s South Operational Command, said on Ukrainian national television on Nov. 30.
According to Humeniuk, Russia is continuing to deploy bombers and missile warships, which indicates that it is preparing to launch another big attack.
She again said that it takes Russia an average of seven to 10 days to prepare for a mass strike. The last mass Russian attack on civilian infrastructure was a week ago, on Nov. 23.
“(Weapons)-equipped strategic and tactical bombers have been deployed at Russian airfields, and a missile (warship) has been put on station (in the Black Sea) – these are indirect signs (that Russia) is preparing for a missile strike,” the spokeswoman said.
“The fact that such an attack did not take place early this week when they planned it, and about which the population was warned, should not be dismissed as unnecessary panic, as it’s a warning and a reminder that the war continues.”
Earlier Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that Russia was preparing another missile strikes at Ukraine’s territory. According to the president, the current week could be as difficult as the previous one.
According to Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov, Russia has launched more than 16,000 missile attacks on Ukraine over the past nine months, with 97% of them hitting civilian objects.
Meanwhile, Secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov suggested that Russia would be able to repeat the massive missile attacks on Ukraine’s infrastructure only another three or four times.
