Russian troops may launch another mass strike against Ukraine during the G20 summit, which is to be held on the Indonesian island of Bali on Nov. 15-16, Air Forces spokesperson Yuriy Ihnat said on national television.
“We all know about upcoming events, such as the G20 leaders’ summit. They really like to devote a provocation to such dates,” Ihnat said.
Ihnat said Russia was accumulating weapons reserves for new mass strikes. They cannot afford to launch big attacks as often as before, as they are running low on missiles, he said.
“Those missiles that they had before the full-scale invasion of Ukraine – they had been producing and stocking up on them for years,” Ihnat said.
It was reported on Nov. 10 that Russia was preparing a new mass missile and suicide drone attack against Ukraine.
According to Ihnat, Russia had been saving up weapons for several months before the October mass strikes.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has warned that the Russians may target energy and crucial infrastructure again.
Their previous attacks resulted in rolling and emergency blackouts throughout the country, especially in Kiyv and nearby regions.
Zelenskyy said about 40% of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure facilities had been damaged as of Nov. 1.
