Moscow/Kyiv – On Thursday (January 26), the Russian army launched massive airstrikes across Ukraine.
55 rockets are said to have been fired at Ukraine from the air and from the sea, according to the US think tank Institute for the Study of War (ISW) in its latest report.
According to this, at least eleven people died.
According to ISW estimates, Ukraine was able to intercept 47 of the 55 missiles, as well as all 24 kamikaze drones.
The troops of Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin are likely to soon face difficulties with arms supplies.
As of January 7, Russia only had 90 of the drones delivered by Iran, the think tank reported, citing Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Resnikov.
For example, Russia could launch "only a few large-scale attacks" against Ukraine with drones if Iran does not deliver supplies.
Drones against Ukraine: Russia probably wants to start production itself
Ukraine has been talking about a possible spring offensive by the Russian military for months.
Insiders have also informed about preparations in the past.
In order to fill the arsenal of weapons with enough kamikaze drones, Russia now apparently wants to get help directly from Iran, as the British TV broadcaster ITV reported, citing official sources.
Iranian specialists are said to be helping Russia to produce drones in their own country that can overcome Ukrainian air defense and allow targeted attacks on the energy infrastructure.
A site for the production facility has already been found in Russia and production can begin “within a few weeks”.
