The Russian

terrorist army currently launches the Kh-59, Kh-101 and Kalibr missiles less often, since the occupiers have an acute shortage of long-range anti-aircraft missiles.

This was stated by military and political commentator Oleksandr Kovalenko in Telegram.

According to him, the Russian aviation is increasingly using Kh-29 and Kh-25 missiles in Ukraine in an attempt to compensate for the shortage of tactical and operational-tactical level missiles.

These missiles have a short range - from 10 to 30 km.

"Ka-52 attack helicopters and Su-25 attack aircraft now perform exactly the functions that previously relied on artillery. But problems with fire potential, namely, the lack of TRK and OTRK, force the Russians to involve other types of aviation to solve combat tasks under increased risk. As you know, the shortage of TRK and OTRK forced the Russians to start using the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system from the end of last spring, not against air targets, but on the surface. But, terror is terror, and what are front-line units to do, in the absence of the necessary support of the TRK and OTRK? This is where Kh-29 and Kh-25 missiles are launched, which have a short range of 10 to 30 km. That is, in this way, the aircraft that launches them is in the zone of potential risk of being hit by an air defense complex , or MANPADS," Kovalenko explained.

In turn, the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, Oleksiy Danilov, stated that the

 Russian Federation cannot produce such a number of missiles

to terrorize Ukraine with massive missile strikes for a long time.

We will remind you that the 

Russians launched an X-55 missile with a nuclear simulator over Ukraine.

Yuriy Ignat, the spokesman for the command of the Air Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, explained that the Russian Federation is doing this in order to 

exhaust Ukrainian means of air defense.

The head of the Joint Coordination Press Center of the Southern Defense Forces, Nataliya Humenyuk, warned that the Russian army

could target Ukraine between mass missile attacks.
