Russia’s “missile blitzkrieg” failed as did Putin’s other strategic plans. However, the Russian occupiers will continue to launch strikes, they still have a lot of outdated missile weapons. A relevant statement was made by Andriy Yusov, Spokesperson for the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, during the nationwide news telethon.

He noted that after the failure of the first blitzkrieg – an attempt to seize Ukraine in three days – the Russians resorted to terrorist attacks, wanting to quickly disable the Ukrainian power system, break public resistance, and cause a new wave of refugees through “missile blitzkrieg”.

“But Putin’s ‘missile blitzkrieg’’ completely failed like all his other strategic plans in the end,” said the spokesperson for the Main Directorate of Intelligence.


In his opinion, now missile strikes on the energy infrastructure have already lost their meaning because the Ukrainian energy system survived despite huge losses.

Ukrainian society rallied even more despite huge losses, despite deliberate strikes on civilian objects, houses, apartment blocks. Ukrainian resistance has not broken,” Yusov said.

He added that energy workers and the State Emergency Service are quickly repairing all damaged facilities, and the whole world helps Ukraine with equipment and generators. The state has almost got through the winter period.

At the same time, according to the spokesperson for the Main Directorate of Intelligence, Russia will continue its terrorist attacks because the command of the Russian army does not have many methods left to fight against Ukraine. The number of high-precision missile weapons is rapidly decreasing, and there is no possibility of replenishing stocks in adequate quantities. However, a lot of outdated missile weapons, in particular for S-300 systems, remain. Accordingly, Ukrainian frontline cities are still under serious threat.
