Russia Is Increasingly Combining Different Types of Missiles to Attack Ukraine: What This Shows
Russian occupiers have been trying to keep up the pace of attacks on the territory of Ukraine lately. To do this, they combine cruise missiles, and kamikaze drones, and missiles from the S-300, S-400 air defense systems, etc.
About this Channel 24said Defense Express expert Ivan Kirichevskiy. According to him, rocket attacks on Ukraine continue. However, now they do not have such a propaganda effect as before.
After all, quite often now they fly over the occupied lands or across the territory of Russia. This is a positive thing. But there are also many negatives.
There is a good tradition. When the Russians try to strike, it flies to their rear as well. Now there is no propaganda effect, as they had before. Now they are constantly anxious. But this is all positive, – said Kirichevskiy.
Occupiers combine strikes
As Kirichevskiy noted, the story of combining different missiles and drones demonstrates that that the Russians are trying to maintain the rate of shelling while maintaining a stockpile of cruise missiles. It also looks like the invaders are actively using X-55 missiles, which are a common “bait”.
This is done to overload the air defense. It may even be necessary to increase the figures on the remainder of the missiles in the possession of the Russians. After all, how actively the Russians use empty X-55s. Only in the Kiev Research Institute of Forensic Examinations there are 10 such missiles in good condition, – said Kirichevskiy.
In addition, it is obvious that the Russians received a fairly significant number of “Shaheds”, which now almost every day fly into the airspace. With the help of these drones, the occupiers are also trying to detect blind spots of Ukrainian air defense.
Such blind spots are possible due to the terrain. The work of Russian agents should not be ruled out either.
These are not very positive things. But you need to know them in order to understand at what heavy price an effective indicator of 90% – 100% of shooting down various missiles and kamikaze drones is achieved. – stressed Kirichevskiy.
Pay attention! May 26 was declared a day of mourning in Dnipro due to the cynical strike of the Russians on the clinic. It happened in the morning of the same day.
