Russia will continue its missile terror against Ukraine, but the aggressor state's tactics have already suffered a defeat, Andriy Yusov, a Ukrainian Defense Intelligence representative, said on Ukrainian national television on March 20.
"The rascists (Russian fascists) are not giving up on missile terror, but we see that the missile blitzkrieg has failed since it began, even though they want to continue using this tool of intimidation," Yusov said.
He said that Russia can’t afford to swamp Ukraine with expensive Kalibr, Iskander, and Kinzhal missiles.
However, still has lots of stocks of outdated missiles, he warned.
"Especially when it comes to the S-300 (air defense missile system), it means an increased threat to the frontline territories, so we still see destruction in Zaporizhzhya and other cities," Yusov noted.
"But in general, this tactic of missile terror has already been defeated."
Earlier, Ukrainian intelligence said that Russia would continue to launch missile strikes, but their massiveness and frequency will depend on the ability to accumulate stockpiles.
The last big Russian missile attack on Ukraine was on March 9, and the previous one on Feb. 16. When Russia started its campaign of missile attacks on Ukrainian infrastructure in early October last year, big attacks came every week to ten days. The frequency of the attacks fell to once every two weeks, and has since fallen to once every three weeks, approximately.
