(Dan Tri) – Ukrainian intelligence believes that Russia still has about 950 missiles in stock, enough to carry out a few more major attacks before stopping to accumulate.

Russian short-range ballistic missiles.

On April 2, Pravda quoted Major General Vadym Skibitskyi, representative of the Ukrainian Defense Intelligence Agency, as saying: `Currently, Russia has about 950 tactical and strategic missiles with a range of more than 350km.`

Mr. Skibitskyi added: `Based on Russia’s methods of use over two years of conflict, we estimate that Russia can conduct several more large-scale coordinated attacks with the participation of cruise missiles.`

According to him, after that, Russia can temporarily stop large-scale raids and switch to stockpiling.

Mr. Skibitskyi said that no one can be sure whether Russia will target Ukraine’s electrical infrastructure in upcoming major attacks, but Moscow will certainly not give up this goal.

`Of course, our electrical infrastructure remains the main target of Russia as well as other military and civilian facilities. This has been demonstrated in the latest large-scale attacks,`

When asked about the scale of high-precision weapons production in Russia, Mr. Skibitskyi said that on average, Russia produces several dozen missiles each month.

`For example, we estimate that each month, Russia can produce about 40 Kh-101 missiles, about 40 Iskander ballistic missiles and cruise missiles, several dozen Kalibr cruise missiles, Kinzhal missiles as well

Previously, on March 31, the head of Ukraine’s Military Intelligence Service, Kyrylo Budanov, said that Russia seemed to be building a warehouse of Kalibr cruise missiles.

Throughout March, Moscow increased its attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure, primarily using Kh-101 cruise missiles.

Meanwhile, Ms. Natalia Humeniuk, spokeswoman for the Southern Forces of Ukraine, said on April 2 that Russia has stopped using sea-launched Kalibr cruise missiles, partly because Moscow is facing logistical problems.

`For the Russians, currently both the supply of missiles and the maintenance of Kalibr launch systems are difficult problems,` Ms. Humeniuk said.

She also assessed: `Russia is switching to the tactic of using ballistic missiles because it realizes that this is a target that Ukrainian forces will find difficult to prevent. That is why they are trying to put pressure on the regions.`
