Although it is late autumn in Ukraine, it is still quite warm, with sub-zero temperatures only occurring at night. Presumably, the Russians are waiting for cold weather to attack Ukrainian energy facilities. Last year, they began their shelling campaign on October 10.
Col. Yuri Ignat, spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force, told Ukrainian TV Channel 24 what the Russian campaign against energy facilities may look like this year.
According to him, the Russians used a lot of missiles last year – in the six months from September 2022 to March 2023, they fired over a thousand cruise missiles. Now, according to Ukraine’s military intelligence (GUR), Putin’s army has about 800 missiles. This number includes both cruise and ballistic missiles.
– We are talking about long-range precision weapons, excluding S-300, Onyx, Ch-31, Ch-59, etc. – explained Yuri Ignat.
