Seven Russian warships are on combat duty in the Black Sea as of Nov. 6, but there are no Kalibr missile carriers among them, Ukraine’s navy has said.
“There are seven enemy ships on combat duty in the Black Sea, among which there are zero carriers of Kalibr cruise missiles, the total salvo is zero missiles,” Ukraine’s navy said in a post on Facebook on Nov. 6.
The Russians continue to control maritime communications in the Sea of Azov, with two ships and boats on combat duty there. There are 10 ships in the Mediterranean, five of which are Kalibr carriers (with a total firing salvo of 76 missiles).
According to the Ukrainian Navy, monitoring maritime traffic through the Kerch Strait between Russia and Ukraine’s Russian-occupied Crimea, 37 ships passed into the Sea of Azov, three of which were heading from the Bosphorus Strait, and 40 ships into the Black Sea, eight of which were headed towards the Bosphorus Strait.
Meanwhile, Secretary of the Ukrainian National Security Council Oleksiy Danilov has said that the time when Russia will exhaust the critical number of its most precise missiles is “already approaching.”
He said the Russian military may have remaining some 25-28% of the total amount of such missiles that they had as of Feb. 24.
