Intelligence: Russia has enough missiles for one or two massive attacks in the coming weeks

The Kremlin has enough missiles for one or two more major attacks in the coming weeks, Andrii Chernyak, a Ukraine’s Military Intelligence representative, said to the Financial Times.

In the last month, Russia renewed its attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure, with its forces launching combined missile and drone assaults, using drones, ballistic, and cruise missiles to target energy facilities.

“We were expecting attacks at the start of winter, but now we see that the missiles they were using were made recently,” Chernyak said.

In his opinion, Russia has enough missiles for one or two more massive attacks in the coming weeks.

According to Chernyak, Russia still uses drones in large numbers because they are cheaper.

The Financial Times reported on 8 April that Russia has changed its tactics for attacking Ukraine’s energy infrastructure, using high-precision missiles to destroy power plants in less protected areas than Kyiv. Some facilities reportedly will not be able to fully recover before next winter.

The group lost about 80 % of its electricity production as a result of Russian attacks carried out in the last week of March. Five DTEK thermal power plants were forced to shut down, the report said.

The same number of missiles used in the [2022-23] winter attack are now being directed at five to six energy facilities in one region,” said Maria Tsaturyan, head of communications at Ukrenergo, adding that “They are trying to cut off large industrial regions and cities from the power supply.”
