Russian navy vessels currently in the Black Sea carry 44 missiles - spox

As of January 17, the total salvo of enemy missiles on six carriers in the Black Sea is estimated at 44.

That’s according to Natalia Humeniuk, head of the joint press center of Operational Command South, who spoke at the national telethon, Ukrinform reports.

"Yesterday, their submarine checked in the base point, which may well indicate reloading. This means that today we estimate the total salvo of missiles on board all six missile launchers that are currently on combat duty at 44. We are talking about the fact that the missile threat remains relevant and highly likely because, with carriers deployed in the sea in a combat position with a missile load of such volumes, this can indicate continued missile attacks," said Humeniuk
