The Russian military no longer has enough Kalibr cruise missiles, Iskander ballistic missiles, or Kh-101 cruise missiles, significantly limiting Moscow’s long-range strike capability, Ukrainian Air Force spokesman Yuri Ihnat told Ukrainian TV broadcasters on March 3.

“In attacking our critical infrastructure, the enemy has expended much of its (long-range) missile arsenal,” said Ihnat.

“By now, they are grappling with a certain shortage of Kalibr and Kh-101 cruise missiles, as well as Iskander ballistic missiles. So, they have very little of these long-range precision weapons left.”

The official also commented on a Russian AWACS plane recently getting damaged at a military airfield in Belarus.

“Naturally, that’s good news for us; (besides, our) Air Force continues to successfully shoot down Russian combat aircraft – today’s downing of an enemy Su-34 jet is an example of that,” Ihnat concluded.
