An explosion in the town of Dzhankoy in the north of the temporarily occupied Crimea destroyed Russian Kalibr NK cruise missiles during their transportation by rail.
“Kalibr NK are missiles designed for launches from surface ships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. The range of such weapons is more than 2,500 km on land targets and 375 km on sea targets. The mysterious explosions continue the process of Russia’s demilitarisation and prepare the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea for de-occupation,” the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine reports.
In turn, Andriy Yusov, a representative of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, emphasised that Russia’s missile terror tactics have already been defeated and military intelligence observes bigger intervals between attacks.
“The Russians do not give up missile terror, but we see that the missile blitzkrieg has failed since it began, although this tool of intimidation is still being used,” said the intelligence representative.
According to Yusov, the enemy cannot afford massive Kalibr, Iskander, Kinzhal missile attacks on Ukraine, but the Russian Federation still has a lot of outdated missile weapons.
“Especially when it comes to S-300, this means the increased threat to the front-line territories, which is why we still see these destructions in Zaporizhzhia and other cities. But in general, this missile terror tactic has already been defeated,” Yusov summed up.
