Russia may launch massive missile attack on Ukraine during G20 summit

Russian troops may carry out provocations, including massive missile strikes on Ukraine, during the G20 summit on November 15-16.

"They cannot afford to constantly launch such a massive strike as on October 10. In October there were four such [massive] missile strikes – the largest ones on October 10, 17, and 23... They are stockpiling... Events are approaching, particularly the G20 summit. They really like to carry out some kind of provocation around these days," Yuriy Ihnat, Spokesperson for the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, said during the nationwide news telethon.

At the same time, he noted that Russia had already exhausted its missile reserves. Ihnat drew attention to the fact that the missiles the Russians had before the large-scale invasion had been being produced for years.

"They are waiting, they are accumulating some forces and means, they are waiting for their enterprises to produce those missiles, perhaps, Iskander and Kh-101," Ihnat noted.

As reported, the G20 summit will be held in Bali, Indonesia, on November 15-16. The President of Ukraine was also invited.

Since October 10, the Russian Federation has been launching massive missile and kamikaze drone strikes on the energy infrastructure across Ukraine. Currently, about 40% of the energy infrastructure facilities are damaged.
