Russian forces have enough missiles for three to five massive attacks on Ukraine’s infrastructure – provided they keep using 80-90 missiles for each salvo – Ukrainian Military Intelligence spokesman Vadym Skibitskyy said in an interview with The New York Times on Dec. 12.
“According to our calculations, they have missiles for three to five further waves of strikes –that is, if there are 80 to 90 missiles in each wave,” said Skibitskyy.
Skibitskyy noted that since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Russia was able to manufacture 240 Kh-101 cruise missiles and about 120 Kalibr sea-launched cruise missiles. In general, Moscow can produce about 40 missiles each month.
Kyrylo Budanov, head of Ukrainian Military Intelligence, previously stated that the stockpile of missiles in the Russian Federation would be enough for several more massive strikes on Ukraine.
Russia launched another massive missile attack on Ukraine on Dec. 5. Ukraine’s Air Force reported that more than 60 missiles out of 70 launched by Moscow were shot down.
