The Russians continue to shell Ukrainian settlements on a daily basis, but now they are using a new strategy. While during the first months of Russia-Ukraine war, the Russian army fired several missiles, now it is increasingly resorting to mass launches, Vadym Denysenko, Adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs, explained during the Espresso TV channel broadcast.
"Earlier several missiles were fired, but now dozens of them are fired. They fire from different points. That is why it is difficult for air defense to handle them. Launched missiles were developed in the middle of the last century and were designed to destroy aircraft carriers, cruisers, and seagoing vessels. They have up to a thousand kilograms of explosive charge and a speed of up to 3,000-4,000 km. Therefore, it is difficult to shoot them down," he said.
Denysenko stresses that although Russia does not have the ability to produce high-precision weapons, such as Kalibr cruise missiles, it has enough of old ones, manufactured in the Soviet times.
Context. According to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, as of early June, Russia had fired more than 2,500 missiles at Ukraine.
On the night of Saturday, June 25, the aggressor fired 48 rmissiles at the settlements of Ukraine.
