Russia is preparing for a massive missile attack on Ukraine, says AFU representative


The army of the Russian Federation is preparing for a new massive missile attack on the territory of Ukraine. In particular, yesterday's missile launch from the Black Sea testifies to this.

What is known about Russia's preparations for a massive missile attack on Ukraine

According to the head of the OC "South" press centre chief, Col. Natalia Humenyuk, the Russians have now brought the missile carriers to the base points. They are equipped and ready — "although not all and not completely".

"Caliber" carriers are not at sea now, but they will have two or three hours to arrive on combat duty, the AFU representative emphasised.

In view of general analytics, taking into account the pause that the enemy endured, understanding his attraction to sacred dates and various other interpretations, in particular, preparation for the same quasi-elections that they are so actively presenting. We can say that now there is a certain calm, maybe before the next storm, — says the OC "South" spokeswoman.

Currently, two boats of the Black Sea Fleet are in the sea. It is about ensuring control over the surface situation and protecting the base point, Gumenyuk explained.

In addition, she mentioned the launch of yesterday's rocket of the Russian Federation, which the occupiers fired from the Black Sea at Odesa. Humenyuk calls this attack "a typical tactic of the enemy." According to her, point rocket strikes will take place from time to time.

Against the background of the aviation losses, the enemy uses it cautiously. A missile strike was launched from the Black Sea to measure the readiness and density of air defence. The missile was probably the Kh-31, an anti-radar missile. It lost its capacity over the Black Sea, Humeniuk explained.

Russian aviation is again bombing the front line

The army of the Russian Federation makes extensive use of aviation.

This was announced by OSTG "Tavria" speaker Capt. Dmytro Lykhovii on the air of the nationwide telethon "Yedini Novyni".

Over the past day, the enemy carried out a total of 54 airstrikes, i.e. again returned to the very massive use of aviation.

According to him, the enemy is actively using aviation in the Avdiivka, Mariinka, and partially in the Novopavlivske directions, and a little less in the Zaporizhzhia direction. He noted that these 54 strikes are distributed almost six to one between the Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia regions.

In addition, Lykhovii informed that today, the enemy has already carried out airstrikes in the Avdiyiv direction in the areas of Novopokrovske, Novobakhmutivka, Stepove, Semenivka, Orlivka and Lastochkyne settlements.
