Russia is reducing the use of precision missiles during strikes, while increasing the interval between strikes.
This was stated by the representative of the Main Directorate of Intelligence (GUR) Vadym Skibitsky in an interview with "RBK-Ukraine".
So, in October of last year, the Russians carried out massive shelling once a week, then once every 10-14 days.
Now the occupiers cannot organize shelling more often than twice a month, because it is necessary to have certain reserves.
"Their production does not allow us to cover the amount that the Russian Aerospace Forces and Naval Forces produced earlier, and accordingly - to compensate for the reserves," - explained the representative of the GUR.
According to him, by the end of the year, the Russians could produce 20-30 Kalibr and X-101 cruise missiles each month.
The enemy has a much worse situation with "Iskanders".
"We know that the Russians intend to double the production of all these missiles. But their main obstacle is sanctions. These missiles have a large share of foreign components. If the sanctions are followed, if there is strict control over them, then the enemy will not be able to achieve these plans implement," Skibitsky noted.
Stockpiles of missiles in the Russian Federation
According to intelligence estimates, the enemy has 15% of the volumes that were before the start of the war.
These are high-precision "Iskanders", "Calibers", Kh-101, Kh-555, "Daggers", as well as Kh-22 missiles.
"However, if considered separately by type, for example, the stocks of Calibers, Kh-101 and Kh-555 make up even less than 10%," says Skibitskyi.
Earlier, Vadym Skibitsky said that the occupiers are changing the direction of their strikes.
In his opinion, Russia can no longer carry out large-scale offensives.
Skibitsky also assessed the threat of an attack from Belarus.
