Zelenskyy: Russia launched on Ukraine over 330 missiles and 600 combat drones since the 2024 beginning

Volodymyr Zelenskyi

Since the beginning of 2024, the Russian invaders have launched over 330 missiles of various types and about 600 drones on the territory of Ukraine.

Zelenskyy emphasised ensuring Ukraine's control over its skies

The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, reported that since the beginning of the year, Russia has launched more than 330 missiles of various types and about 600 combat drones in the cities of Ukraine.

To withstand such terrorist pressure, a sufficiently strong air shield is required. And this is the type of air shield we are building with our partners, — wrote Zelenskyy.

The president emphasised Ukraine's control over its skies, critical to ensuring security on the ground—from frontline positions to hospitals and schools in the rear.

Air defense and electronic warfare are our top priorities. Russian terror must be defeated—this is achievable, the head of state noted.

Attack of the Russian Federation on Ukraine on January 30

On the night of January 30, Russian terrorists launched 35 Shahed kamikaze drones and two S-300 guided missiles over Ukraine.

Air defence forces and means destroyed 15 enemy UAVs within Mykolaiv, Sumy, Cherkasy, Kirovohrad, Dnipropetrovsk, Kharkiv, Kherson and Kyiv regions.

The enemy directed part of the combat drone along the frontline territories, trying to hit the infrastructure of the fuel and energy sector, civilian and military facilities near the front line and Russia's state border.

According to Air Force spokesman Yuriy Ignat, according to the latest data, the Russian Federation has about 900 high-precision long-range missiles left.

As Ignat points out, during these attacks, the Russians used almost all the missiles they managed to produce after the previous massive attacks.

Therefore, despite what they produce, they also spend. That is why the figure has remained at this level, emphasised by the Air Force spokesman.

At the same time, according to Yuriy Ignat, the Russian army also has many missiles of the S-300 anti-aircraft missile complex, which they notably launched on the Kharkiv region, as well as aviation and anti-ship missiles.
