Air Force: Russia used large stockpile of missiles in two weeks, switching to kamikaze drones

The Russian Federation has a shortage of missiles but has not run out of missiles yet. Currently, the enemy is focusing on kamikaze drones.

"The shortage is already observed. But they still launch missile attacks on us at about one week intervals. First, they launched 84 missiles, then 28... So in two weeks, the enemy used a fairly large stockpile of missile weapons. In addition, we see threatening information from Iran that surface-to-surface missiles may be provided to the enemy. This is another challenge, another threat, and we get ready for it," Yuriy Ihnat, Spokesperson for the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, said.

When asked why the Russian Federation did not so actively use its missile potential until October 10, Ihnat suggested that the enemy had been stockpiling missiles on ships and submarines, as well as Kh-101 air-launched missiles.

“The enemy is now actively using kamikaze drones, and we shoot down 10-15 or even more such UAVs daily," he emphasized.

According to the spokesperson, the Air Force and other units of the Defense Forces have already learnt how to destroy Iranian kamikaze drones and cruise missiles most effectively. "Of course, the enemy uses them to exhaust our air defense system, but we successfully destroy them and will continue to do so in the future," Ihnat assured.
