"They are in big trouble": Navy spokesman explains why Russians hardly ever use Kalibr to strike Ukraine

Why Russia hardly ever uses Kalibrs

The main ships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, cruise missile carriers, are still afloat and can still fire on the territory of Ukraine. However, they are no longer using Kalibr missiles for strikes.

Captain Dmytro Pletenchuk, a spokesman for the Russian Navy, believes that Russia has problems with Kalibr because of military logistics. It is possible to load these missiles in Crimea, but the occupiers have been trying to avoid the peninsula lately.

"As we can see, they have not used cruise missile carriers for a long time. The only confirmed salvo, four missiles from the Admiral Makarov frigate, was after the destruction of the Caesar Kunikov." This is an act of desperation, they could not keep silent in this situation. But having theoretically eight missiles on board, he used only four. This also speaks volumes," says Pletenchuk.

The fact is that their Novorossiysk military base is not designed to load Kalibr missiles, and Russia can only equip its ships with such ballistics at the Sevastopol base. "And this is still a problem for them," noted the 3rd rank captain.

"The aggressor has been well aware of the situation for quite some time. That is why it takes appropriate measures, such as dispersal of ship and boat personnel, change of basing points, periodic redeployment of ships between basing points, primarily Novorossiysk, Sochi, Tuapse," explained Pletenchuk.

According to him, Russia has already lost a third of its fleet in the Black Sea. "It makes no sense to replenish (ammunition), because even the ships that are available now do not fully fulfill the tasks for which they are there," the military added.
