Russia has used up to 60% of all its missiles
According to the information of the military intelligence of Ukraine, the aggressor mostly used ballistic missiles against the Iskander complex. In this regard, the use of missiles of this type for strikes on the territory of Ukraine has not been recorded for a long time. This was stated by the representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine, Vadym Skibitsky, during a briefing on July 21.
"Regarding high-precision weapons, as Russia claims, these are the Iskander, Kalibr systems, air-launched cruise missiles - Kh101, Kh555. According to our calculations, 55 to 60% of the pre-war reserves have been used today," Vadim Skibitskyi said.
Due to international sanctions, Russia has problems producing new missiles. However, it has enough old Soviet stocks.
"These are cruise missiles, the same X22. Which including, have already been used twice from the territory of Belarus. Other cruise missiles, a full set of rockets - "Smerch", "Uragan", BM-21 "Grad", various types of aerial bombs. All that is left of the Soviet Union, and the reserves are very large and it is very difficult to calculate how much is left there," added Vadym Skibitsky.
Also, a representative of the military intelligence of Ukraine said that the statement of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Serhii Lavrov that the "special operation" went beyond the borders of the "DPR" and "LPR" means, in particular, the creation of a basis for resolving the status of the temporarily occupied territories in the south of Ukraine.
"What does Lavrov's statement mean, which he made, by the way, other high officials of the Russian Federation also spoke about such possibilities. It means one thing, now the basis is being created for deciding the fate or the status of the temporarily occupied territories of our state in the south, this is first of all the Kherson region and part of the Zaporizhia region," said Vadym Skibitsky.
The representative of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine added that Russia is preparing the international community to help the Russian-speaking population and citizens living in the temporarily occupied territories.
