Russia is facing a shortage of missiles, a representative of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine Vadym Skibitskyi said on Ukrainian national television on Jan. 1.
According to Ukrainian intelligence, the Russian military has enough cruise missiles for another two or three massive attacks on Ukraine.
Skibitskyi says Russia initially faced a shortage of Iskander missiles. Besides, stocks of Kalibr cruise missiles are running out. The stocks of Kh-101 and Kh-555 are also decreasing, but more slowly.
"The Russians have a deficit today...” Skibitskyi said.
“And our calculations are very simple. The maximum that Russia is capable of is two or three powerful strikes like the ones we have seen recently.”
He added that Russia continues to produce missiles, although its pace has slightly decreased.
On Dec. 31, Russia carried out another large-scale missile attack on Ukraine. Explosions were heard in Kyiv, Zaporizhzhya, Khmelnytskyi and Mykolaiv. There were casualties and wounded, and civilian objects were damaged.
