Russia may be preparing targeted missile strikes with the aim of putting pressure on the Ukrainian population and exhausting it psychologically, a military spokesperson said on Jan. 30.
Russia has 11 ships in the Black Sea, three of which are Kalibr carriers, carrying a total volley of 20 cruise missiles, Natalia Humeniuk, head of the Joint Coordination Press Center of the Southern Defense Forces of Ukraine, said on Ukrainian national television.
She said that Russia was continuing to try to put pressure on the population, and that it is possible that the enemy would launch more targeted missile attacks on Ukrainian territory.
According to Humeniuk, the Russian leadership began to use terror with smaller air attacks in an attempt to bring psychological exhaustion and pressure on the population.
The spokeswoman said that the missile launchers in the Black Sea are evidence that Russia "continues to keep up the pressure."
"We cannot rule out targeted missile strikes," she said.
Earlier, National Security and Defense Council Secretary Oleksiy Danilov stated that Russian troops are reducing the intensity of their mass missile strikes. Russia is no longer able to produce the necessary number of missiles to "terrorize" Ukraine with attacks for a long time, he said.
