Russian aviation uses deserted places as cruise missile launch sites in case of "emergencies" such as the one that occurred in the village of Petropavlovka, Voronezh region of the Russian Federation, on the morning of January 2. There, the fall of the occupiers' missile destroyed the locals' houses.

The command of the aggressor country's troops does not disclose information about how many launches were unsuccessful. Ivan Stupak, a military expert and former Security Service of Ukraine officer, drew attention to this in a commentary to OBOZ TV.

"This is an explanation of why the Russians launch missiles from the Caspian Sea, the Black Sea. It is done so that when these missiles fail, they simply fall into deserted areas and no one sees them," he said.

Stupak noted that we do not know how many such unsuccessful launches there were. "But we can understand that there was definitely more than one unsuccessful one," the military expert said.

On January 2, the Russian Armed Forces conducted a high-intensity air attack. The enemy tried to overload our air defense system.

The invaders hoped that the Ukrainian military would use up all the ammunition on the large number of Shahed kamikaze drones launched earlier.

"And then our military has to physically run somewhere, drag these missiles or carry them on a truck, bring them to the launch site... And at this time they launch cruise and ballistic missiles," Stupak explained the enemy's plan.

He added that 10 Kinzhal ballistic missiles launched at a time is the "hysteria" of the Russian occupiers.
