Russia may launch another massive missile strike at Ukraine in the near future, Natalia Humeniuk, spokeswoman for the Ukrainian military’s South Operational Command, said during a briefing on Jan. 11.
According to the official, after the massive New Year’s strike, the Russians returned warships to base for reloading, and there is a possibility that the next strike might employ mixed tactics, i.e. with the use of both drones and missiles.
Humeniuk said the activity of Russian UAVs indicates there are preparations for such a massive attack on Ukraine, since the Russians first gather information about the targets they want to hit.
“Given that the enemy usually takes 10-12 or 14 days to restock after a massive missile attack, we can say that we are right on the eve of another such massive attack,” she said.
Russia attacked Ukraine with missiles and drones on Dec. 31, on New Year’s night and overnight on Jan. 2. There were casualties and wounded from the attacks, and civilian infrastructure objects were damaged.
