Why Russia is using Kalibr missiles less often: the Ukrainian Navy gives a reason
The Russian occupation army has not been using Kalibr sea-launched cruise missiles to fire at Ukraine for a long time. Putin's terrorists are probably trying to accumulate high-precision missile weapons.
At the same time, the military-industrial complex of the aggressor country cannot fully meet the needs of the Russian army. This was stated by Dmytro Pletenchuk, a spokesman for the Ukrainian Navy, on Suspilne TV channel.
According to him, the enemy is currently accumulating Kalibr cruise missiles. Pletenchuk also emphasized that the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation cannot provide the occupiers with the number of missiles they are used to having at hand.
He also added that the Russians moved most of the missile launchers from the temporarily occupied Sevastopol to the ports of Novorossiysk. However, the enemy had a problem with logistics there, because in order to equip a ship with missiles, it needs to be transferred to Sevastopol, where there are appropriate facilities.
Pletenchuk explained that Russians are afraid to keep ships in the temporarily occupied Crimea because of the threat of fire. At the same time, they cannot equip ships with missiles in Novorossiysk, so the enemy is facing a dilemma.
As a reminder, President Volodymyr Zelenskyi said that the expulsion of the Russian military fleet from the Black Sea is the greatest achievement of the Defense Forces since the beginning of the full-scale invasion. This allowed the resumption of food flights with grain supplies to countries on three continents: Asia, Africa and Europe.
Earlier it was reported that as of the end of November, the Russian occupiers could have accumulated up to 900 long-range precision missiles. It is likely that terrorists could use them to attack Ukraine.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, the spokesman for the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Yurii Ihnat, warned that since the enemy at this stage of the war mostly resorts to single missile strikes, Russia is probably accumulating weapons for future large-scale attacks.
