After 632 days of war in ukrainethe Ukrainian authorities assure that Russia concentrate on Crimeaoccupied by Moscow since 2014, more than 800 missiles that it plans to use to attack the Ukrainian energy system this winter. “We are talking in total about more than 800 missiles prepared to be used by the enemy in the stage of energy terror,” specified the press chief of the Ukrainian southern command, Natalia Gumeniuk, citing information from the Ukrainian military intelligence (GUR).
Among the missiles accumulated on this peninsula located southeast of Ukraine from which Russia launches many of its air attacks, cruise missiles stand out Caliber and supersonic missiles Onyx. Ukraine does not have air systems capable of intercepting supersonic missiles over most of its territory. With the exception of Kievwhere the Ukrainians have built a sophisticated modern air defense architecture with the best systems received from the West, Ukraine is vulnerable to this type of missile.
Russia carried out a massive campaign last year airstrikes against Ukrainian thermal and electrical networks which left millions of Ukrainians without light and heating in the coldest time of the year. kyiv has been warning for weeks that Russia is stockpiling missiles to repeat the campaign this winter when temperatures have dropped below zero.
