During the missile attack on Ukraine on March 9, Russia used the weapons it could produce in a month. Andrii Yusov, a representative of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, stated this on the air of a nationwide telethon.

"There were also more massive missile strikes, and, ultimately, the intervals between them were much shorter. That is why the Rashists continue their missile terror, but already taking into account the shortage of high-precision missile weapons that they have today. We can say that they have been accumulating forces for a month , in particular, factories were working. In fact, what they could produce in a month was spent today on Ukrainian transformers," said the representative of the Main Directorate of Intelligence.

According to Andriy Yusov, Russian stockpiles of many types of missile weapons are "critically low", and the interval between attacks is since the Russians are trying to make up for the costs of ammunition through production, but they cannot produce in sufficient quantities.

"They have 7% of Kalibrsleft from the number at the beginning of the full-scale aggression. They can't make up those costs even through production," Andriy Yusov said.

At the same time, he noted that Russia is trying to use all approaches to circumvent sanctions, particularly smuggling, "gray" schemes for supplying the necessary components for producing weapons.
