Russia using fewer Kalibr missiles due to logistical issues – military spox

Russian troops currently use fewer Kalibr cruise missiles due to logistical difficulties.

Nataliia Humeniuk, head of the joint press center of the Operational Command South, said this on Ukrainian television, Ukrinform reports.

"Most likely, there are a number of reasons here. It is now problematic for the Russians to maintain the launchers for Kalibr missiles and to reload with Kalibrs, because all this logistics and infrastructure remains in the Sevastopol bays, and it is now very problematic for missile carriers to get there," Humeniuk said.
