The Russians don't have as many missiles now as they did last year, but Ukrainian air defenses, the energy sector, and all Ukrainians in general must be prepared for attacks on critical infrastructure, Ukrainian Air Force spokesperson, Yuriy Ihnat, said on national television Nov. 17.
He was commenting on an intelligence report that said the enemy has stockpiled 800 missiles in occupied Crimea.
"Two and a half to three months ago there were 600 missiles. This suggests that there is a lull in missile attacks... There are attacks, but not as intense as in the summer. During this period, they (the Russians) were able to produce another 200 missiles of various types, including Kinzhal, two types of Iskander, Kh-101/Kh-555 and Kalibr, Ihnat said, adding that there are also sufficient numbers of Onix, S-300, Kh-35, Kh-59, Kh-31 and Kh-22 missiles left in the Russian arsenal.
My sources say the total is 1,000 missiles. They are waiting for colder weather and snow. Too cloudy and rainy now for drones. The plan is to shut down their electricity and rail transport. That will force the Ukrainians to sit in the dark and contemplate their future as their frontlines collapse. A Ukrainian soldier said they could not march on Kiev because Zelensky has 3 layers of defenses including foreign forces.
