Ukraine is doing everything possible to prevent an increase in the production of any weapons in Russia
Meanwhile, Russia began to combine and change its tactics of attacks against Ukraine
Vadym Skibitskyi, a representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, said this in a program on Ukraine’s television.
“We see the impact of economic sanctions on the Russian Federation. They are trying to circumvent sanctions and import components, but it’s not so easy to do. First, we collect such information and share it with our partners. […] In addition, other measures are being taken to prevent the production of any weapons on the territory of the Russian Federation from increasing. Today’s Russian deficit is related to Iskander ballistic missiles, the stocks of Kalibrs are depleting, and the number of Kh-101, Kh-555 air-based cruise missiles is decreasing. The most that Russia is capable of is two or three such powerful strikes, as we have seen recently,” Skibitskyi said, clarifying that the issue concerns high-precision weapons.
At the same time, he noted that the production of missiles in Russia does not stop. “Unfortunately, production does not stop. Their volume is not that big, but they are produced. We now find debris from missiles made in the fourth quarter of 2022. So, they are produced and immediately given to the troops for the shelling of our facilities,” Skibitskyi said.
He noted that the enemy began to combine and change tactics, using in various configurations both Iranian-made UAVs, old-type missiles, high-precision ballistic missiles and modified S-300 missiles.
Skibitskyi also stated that the enemy began to face a shortage of multiple launch rocket systems. “If we talk about land, then it is, first of all, the Smerch, Uragan and even 122mm, 152mm artillery shells. The Main Intelligence Directorate constantly records Russia’s measures to replenish these ammunitions from other countries. They brought a large amount from Belarus and are very actively working with other countries to find stocks,” Skibitskyi said.
He added that the Main Intelligence Directorate is also working to obtain information from Russia in order to timely expose the plans of the enemy, to warn the state and its military leadership, so that Ukraine’s response could be adequate.
