GUR: Russia used missiles made in a month for a night strike on Ukraine
The Russian military, when attacking Ukraine on March 9, used a month's worth of missile production. This was announced on the air of the telethon by Andriy Yusov, a representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
«It (today's shelling – ed.) cannot be called unprecedented, except perhaps because of the number of “Daggers” used – it is the largest of the other shellings. But there were also more massive missile strikes, and the intervals between them were much shorter. The Rashists continue their missile terror, but taking into account the shortage of weapons, in particular, the missile weapons that they have today. In principle, we can say that they have been accumulating strength for a month, and in fact, what they were able to develop in a month was used today for Ukrainian transformers», Yusov said.
According to him According to him, Russia will not be able to restore the intensity of missile strikes that was at the beginning in the near future.
«Those intervals that were at the beginning of this missile terror, when we expected massive missile strikes almost every week , including with the use of more drones and high-precision missiles – we do not observe this today, and in the near future it is unlikely that the enemy will be able to restore the same intensity», – added the representative of the GUR.
- On the night of March 9, Russia launched another massive missile attack on Ukraine. In total, the enemy fired 81 missiles.
- The Russian Ministry of Defense stated that the nighttime missile attack on Ukraine was a “retaliation strike” for the Bryansk region.
- Shmyhal said that Russian missiles damaged energy facilities at night in 8 regions.
