Defence Intelligence at the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence has predicted that the Russians will keep carrying out large missile strikes on Ukraine, and it will take about a week to prepare for the next attack.

Quote: “They are trying to break us, plunge us into darkness and cold during the war and force us to negotiate on the aggressor’s terms. This is not going to happen; we understand that the frequency of massive missile attacks on Ukraine is about a week. That is, they need a week to prepare for the next attack of this scale.”
Details: Yusov has pointed out that Russia’s stocks of high-precision weapons have been depleted, but the aggressor still has a lot of low-precision missiles.

Ukraine is working on protecting civilian infrastructure and the civilian population, but we understand that the enemy is serious, armed, and massive despite its clumsiness. Therefore, unfortunately, the missile terror may still continue.”

Nevertheless, the Air Force of Ukraine has explained that the Russians keep producing more modern types of missiles.
On 23 November, Russia carried out another large missile attack on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure. Air defence units shot down 51 out of 70 cruise missiles and 5 kamikaze drones. As a result of the missile attack, most Ukrainian oblasts have been…
