Russians did not conduct any air attacks last night. However, the eastern area remains very tense, the Air Force spokesman Yuriy Ihnat said during a telethon.
"The enemy keeps trying to attack in the Donetsk area. There are very tough battles here. Many aviation units of the enemy are involved. Our aviation is also working. Our fighters also continue to do their job," he said.
Ihnat suggested that the Russians have reduced the intensity of strikes with drones and missiles because they saw that the effect of single strikes is not that noticeable. Probably, the occupiers are now trying to build up stocks.
"In fact, for the massive attacks, which we had four of in October, the enemy had been accumulating its means for several months," he noted.
According to him, Russian plants are working in three shifts to replenish the losses of cruise missiles.
"Probably, they are accumulating some stockpile to launch a volley. This is not excluded, because the enemy has not abandoned its intentions to destroy our critical infrastructure," he stressed.
According to the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defenсe, Russia has used about 80% of its modern missiles. There are about 120 Iskanders left. Military intelligence knows about the Kremlin's plans to buy Iranian ballistic missiles Fateh-110 and Zolfaghar. They want to send them by air to Crimea, and from there - by sea to Russian Caspian ports.
