Russia wants to equip Kh-32 cruise missiles with cluster munitions: NRC discloses details

The Russian Defense Ministry has already given instructions to the engineers of the plant near Moscow

The Russian army plans to equip Kh-32 cruise missiles with cluster munitions. Back in October, the aggressor country's Ministry of Defense gave appropriate instructions to the engineers of the Dubno Machine-Building Plant (Moscow Region), where the enemy produces deadly weapons for shelling Ukraine.

This was reported by the National Resistance Center on January 4. They noted that they had received evidence of the enemy's criminal intentions.

"Concerned people provided the National Resistance Center with documents from the Dubno Machine-Building Plant, where the occupiers manufacture missiles for further shelling of Ukraine's civilian infrastructure," the statement said.

So far, no cases of using modernized missiles have been recorded. At the same time, the National Center called on Ukrainians to respond promptly to the alarm, as the occupiers disregard international law and are ready to use more lethal weapons against civilians.

The NRC also urged to continue providing data on the plans and location of enemy positions to the "Resistance" Telegram channel and assured that anonymity of appeals is guaranteed.

What is known about Kh-32 missiles

The Kh-32 is a Russian air-to-surface cruise missile with a range of up to 1000 km and a speed of 4-5,400 km/h, developed by the Raduga Design Bureau (Dubna, Moscow Region, Russia).

The Kh-32, like its predecessor, the Kh-22, has features of both cruise missiles (flight conditionally parallel to the ground and reliance on lift) and ballistic missiles (dive at a high angle to the surface with a significant speed and a rocket engine). In fact, it can be considered an aeroballistic missile.

Russia launches these missiles from Tu-22M3M bombers.

As reported by OBOZ.UA:

- The ISW noted that NATO continues initiatives to support Ukraine in the airspace to counter Russian strikes. The partners are discussing the transfer of F-16s to the Ukrainian Armed Forces along with instructors, and a coalition of countries is being formed to receive a thousand Patriot missiles, but it is unclear whether Ukraine will receive at least some of them.

- To prevent Russia from launching massive attacks against Ukraine, it is necessary to strengthen air defense, destroy enemy launchers, a sufficient number of F-16s and a strong international response to Russia's actions, said Mykola Malomuzh, the head of Ukraine's Foreign Intelligence Service in 2005-2010.

- According to the UK military intelligence, recent attacks on Ukraine have shown a change in Russian tactics. Strikes of considerable intensity are aimed not so much at the energy sector, but primarily at the military industry.
